OXFORD, Miss. –  Adding one of the top rising stars in the golf coaching community and a member of a tremendous golf family, Ole Miss men’s coach Ernest Ross has named Nick Biershenk as his new assistant coach Monday.

Biershenk comes to Ole Miss after three years at Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C., where he served as the head men’s and women’s golf coach. After finishing last in the conference during his first season, Biershenk led the Saints’ men’s team to a third-place conference finish last season. When he arrived at Limestone College, the men’s and women’s teams were ranked No. 132 and 144, respectively. The Limestone women are currently ranked No. 21 and the men No. 22 nationally. He replaces Jack O’Keefe, who was named the head coach at Augusta State.

“I am delighted to have Nick join us at Ole Miss," Ross said. "He is really passionate about winning and competing. He is all about playing with confidence. He will help our team, and I look forward to having him here with us.”

“I would like to thank Coach Ross and the administration at Ole Miss for the opportunity to coach in the best conference in the country,” Biershenk said. “Ole Miss is an incredible University to work for and I look forward to helping the team become one of the best in all of college golf. The future of Ole Miss Golf is headed in the right direction, and I’m very excited to be a part of it.”

A native of Boiling Springs S.C., Biershenk played for Clemson University from 2003-07 and was a member of the Tigers' 2003 National Championship team. He graduated in 2007 with a degree in Sports Management.

After a successful collegiate career, Biershenk had a quality run at the professional level. He posted six professional wins on the Carolina Mountain Tour and three top-five finishes in three starts on the Carolinas Pro Golf Tour. He won the 2009 Skyview Open Championship, posting rounds of 66, 68 and 67, respectively.

In addition to the tremendous amount of experience he brings, Biershenk comes from a strong golfing family. His brother, Tommy, was a successful player on the Web.com and PGA Tour for 13 years, while his other brother, Robbie, is five-time World Long Drive Finalist and Big Break Contestant. Robbie also had a show on the Golf Channel in 2013 called “Chasing the Dream.”
