Coach Howell is in his 14th season with the Titans. In previous seasons Howell has chalked up 35 tournament wins and coached 16 All-Americans with two players, Jacob Davis (2004) and Billy Anderson (2011) winning NJCAA individual national titles. He was District Coach of the Year in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2015 and the 2015 winner of the Dave Williams National Coach of the Year Award presented by Golf Pride Grips as the top coach in NJCAA Division I. The Titans have won five NJCAA District 4 championships and reached the NJCAA National Tournament in all 13 of Howell's seasons with a best finish of second in 2015. His 2006-2007 team was the Florida Community College Activities Association Male Academic team of the year for the state of Florida.
"Jerome is everyone's assistant. Never one to shirk from a task, you can find him
at practice every day as well as setting up for the Junior Hour every Saturday at
the range. Not unlike so many other programs across the country, I do not know where
I would be without the assistance and friendship of the Jerome Smiths of the world,"
says EFSC Head Coach Jamie Howell.
Kyle Benson joins Eastern Florida as assistant men’s goal coach. Benson was a member of the Titans golf team from 2012-2014, competed in two NJCAA national championships and was a consistent contributor to scoring throughout his two-year career. He brings a wealth of knowledge of what it takes to be successful in college as well as knowing his way around the golf course. He is a tenacious competitor and brought out the competitive side in his former teammates. Head coach Jamie Howell looks for Benson to do the same with the current team as he helps guide them through the process of being a team player for the Titan golf team.
