NEW YORK (AP) - Former St. John’s golf coach Frank Darby, whose program produced 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, has been named to the same position at Manhattan College.

Darby spent 20 years at St. John’s, his alma mater. He led the Red Storm to six NCAA regional appearances and coached 27 All Big-East selections, including Bradley and PGA Tour member Andrew Svoboda.

Darby, the 2014 Big East coach of the year, has been a member of the PGA of America for 27 years and is the Tournament Operations Director for the Metropolitan Section of the PGA. He was the head golf professional at Nissequoque Golf Club for 11 years and Colonial Springs Golf Club for two.

Darby replaces Jerry Wood, who retired after four seasons at Manhattan.

The Jaspers return eight letter winners, including all four scorers from the 2015 MAAC Championships.
