TCU Names Bill Alcorn Head Men’s Golf Coach

FORT WORTH – TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati has announced the hiring of Bill Allcorn as Head Men’s Golf Coach.
Allcorn was on staff at Oklahoma the last six years, the first five as an assistant coach before being promoted to associate head coach in 2022. 
“I could not be more excited to welcome Bill Allcorn and his family to TCU,” said Donati. “We conducted a national search and vetted a number of exceptional candidates with strong credentials, which speaks to the strong foundation Coach Bill Montigel has built and the opportunity in front of us. Coach Allcorn’s vision for our program is ambitious and inspiring and is aligned with TCU’s goals and values.  He is the perfect fit to lead our men’s golf program moving forward.”
The 2021 Jan Strickland National Assistant Coach of the Year, Allcorn has helped oversee Oklahoma cement itself atop collegiate golf. This season, OU won its second-straight Big 12 Championship and advanced to the NCAA Championships for the 12th-straight season. With Allcorn’s assistance, OU has won three Big 12 Championships, advanced to NCAA match play in all five years that a postseason has been held and won 25 tournament titles.
“My family and I could not be more excited to come to Fort Worth and have this great opportunity at TCU,” said Allcorn. “We are grateful that Jeremiah Donati believed in our vision and has given us the chance to lead the men’s golf program. We have loved our six years in Norman and can’t thank Coach Ryan Hybl, our players and support staff enough for the friendship and memories. The good Lord knew exactly where we needed to be to prepare us for where we are going. We are excited to finish off the 2023 season with the Sooners and then call TCU home!”
During the 2021-22 season, Oklahoma won a school-record tying seven tournaments, including the program’s 18th conference championship. Ranked outside the top 10 to open the season, OU quickly ascended into the nation’s No. 1 spot, a position they would maintain for nearly the entire season. Oklahoma earned the overall No. 1 seed for the second consecutive season and advanced to NCAA match play for an NCAA-record sixth successive season. Three Sooners earned All-America honors including Chris Gotterup, who became OU’s first Haskins Award winner, earning the title national player of the year and Big 12 Golfer of the Year.
In the 2020-21 season, Allcorn helped OU to a runner-up finish at the national championship. The Sooners were the nation’s consensus No. 1 team entering the postseason and road the momentum into the national championship match. That year, the entire Oklahoma lineup was named to the All-America team for the first time in program history.
In the shortened 2019-20 season, OU was the No. 1 team in the nation and finished inside the top two at four of its six tournaments.
In his first two seasons at OU, Allcorn helped the Sooners advance to the NCAA quarterfinals in 2018 and 2019.
Prior to Oklahoma, Allcorn spent two seasons as a volunteer assistant men’s golf coach with Baylor. He also worked with Baylor’s women’s program in the spring of 2017. Allcorn has also developed Explosive Golf Training, a program designed to help golfers maintain posture and balance while improving accelerating and decelerating abilities in their golf swing. He has consulted with multiple college golf programs and trained both professionals and high-level amateurs on his program.
As a golfer, Allcorn played professionally for eight years. He was the 2011 winner of the Adams Pro Tour Money List and earned several victories on the Adams Pro Tour, state opens and pro-am events.
Allcorn was a four-year letterwinner at Baylor. He competed in 38 tournaments during his career, claiming a title at the Bill Hill Invitational and finishing as runner-up in the 2009 Big 12 Championship. He graduated cum laude in 2009 with a degree in economics. A two-time All-American Scholar, Allcorn was also a four-time Academic All-Big 12 team member and was named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll 10 times.
A native of Abilene, Texas, Allcorn lettered in both golf and basketball at Abilene High School.
He and his wife Mallory, have two children.
