Florida hires J.C. Deacon as men's coach

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has hired former Canadian Tour player J.C. Deacon as its men's golf coach.

Deacon served as an assistant at UNLV the last four seasons. He replaces Buddy Alexander, who retired in April after 27 seasons, two national championships (1993, 2001) and eight Southeastern Conference titles.

Deacon also played for UNLV (2001-05) and helped the Rebels win the Mountain West title in 2002. He advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2005.

After college, Deacon pursued a professional career and played on several tours. He competed in 35 events over a three-year span (2008-10) on the Canadian Tour and made 17 cuts. His best finish was a tie for fourth at the 2008 Saskatchewan Open.

He says ''there are a serious amount of championships to be won at Florida.''
