FINDLAY, Ohio -- Dominic Guarnieri has been tabbed by Findlay athletic director Steven Rackley to lead both the men's and women's golf programs. He takes over for the recently retired Al Baker.

"After an extensive search, I am pleased to announce the hiring of Dominic Guarnieri as our new director of golf operations," Rackley said. "Dominic knows Findlay very well after playing and coaching here. He is undoubtedly the right person to lead both of our golf programs in the present and into the future."

Guarnieri served on staff as an assistant last season under Baker and also was a graduate assistant coach for the Oilers for two years after winning four letters on the men's golf team from 2002-05.

"I am excited to continue to build upon the success that Al Baker built over the last 21 years," Guarnieri said. "I see great potential in both of our programs and I am looking forward to taking this next step in my career."

Between his stints at Findlay, Guarnieri was an assistant golf coach at St. Marys Memorial High School for one year before taking over the head coaching position for two years. In his second year at the helm, he led the team to its only conference tournament win in school history.
