Jones Named to NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Committee

Chattanooga Mocs administrator Ken Jones is the newest member of the NCAA Men's Golf Committee.

Chattanooga Mocs Senior Associate Athletics Director Ken Jones is serving his first of four terms on the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Committee in 2023-24.  He represents the East Region as part of his duties. 

Jones is in his 10th year at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, working as the lead compliance officer for the Mocs.  In addition to those duties, he is the administrative oversight of the men’s and women’s golf programs and serves as an integral member of the athletics executive team.

“Ken is a talented member of our team and does an excellent job as oversight of our golf programs,” stated Vice-Chancellor for Athletics Mark Wharton.  “It is exciting to see members of our staff serve in leadership roles in the NCAA, and I know he will do a great job on the committee.”

The six-member committee is responsible for the selection and seeding of the competing teams in the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships. Jones and the committee work with the Golf Coaches Association of America regarding NCAA Championships format, scoring, media and factors influencing NCAA men’s golf. Jones helped lead the hiring search that brought current men’s head coach Blaine Woodruff to Chattanooga.  That move paid off well with the Mocs advancing to the NCAA Championships in Woodruff’s first season.
