Jason Rodenhaver has been the head coach of both the Maryland men's and women's golf teams since 2011. Prior to that, he spent 12 seasons as the head women’s golf coach since the program’s inception in 1999.
In those 12 seasons, he built the women’s golf team into one of the top programs in the east and in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Maryland has been represented in the NCAA Tournament six times in the past seven seasons, including four invitations as a team.
"I'm excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead both the men's and women's golf programs at my alma mater," said Rodenhaver, a 1994 graduate of Maryland. "I want to thank Kevin Anderson and the entire administration for the confidence they have in me. This is my dream job, having played and coached here since 1991. I look forward to taking both programs to the next level."
"I'm excited about elevating Jason to the director of intercollegiate golf," said Maryland director of athletics Kevin Anderson. "No one cares more about the men's and women's golf programs than Jason, having played here, serving as a men's assistant coach for four years and then starting the women's program in 1999 as head coach. I believe this hire will strengthen both the men's and women's programs."
In his time at Maryland, he’s led the women’s program to 18 team wins, eight All-ACC honorees, 13 Academic All-Americans and seven individual tournament wins. In his three years with the men’s team, the Terps have picked up two individual tournament wins and Sean Bosdosh competed in the NCAA Regionals in 2013. His teams have won the President’s Cup three times.
He played three seasons for the Terrapins and led the team to a fifth-place finish at the ACC Championship in 1994. That finish was the best for Maryland since 1978. He was a two-year captain of the men's golf team and participated in the NCAA East Regional in his senior season. He also played at SMU for one season before transferring to Maryland.
Rodenhaver earned his bachelor's degree in kinesiology. Most of his family, including his wife, Robyn, are graduates of Maryland. His father is a member of the National Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame and was an assistant golf coach with the Terps. He and his wife have a son, Austin, and twins, Gavin and Reese.
