Janell Howland, a native of Boise, Idaho, is in her fourth year at Ole Miss, and her first as associate head coach with the Ole Miss women's golf program. Howland previously spent three years with the program as an assistant coach, and was promoted to her current title before the start of the 2013 fall season.

During Howland's season with the Seahawks, sophomore Sofia Hagsund qualified for the NCAA East Regional. Howland coached Hagsund and senior Carmen Perez-Narbon to All-CAA honors.

"I am very excited to have Janell on staff," head coach Michele Drinkard said "She brings a lot of energy and passion for the game as well as her experience as a player on the LPGA and Futures Tours. She knows how to win and that will be a great benefit to us. Janell will be able to work with the players to help them see the course from a tour player's perspective and be able to speak to them from experience which is invaluable."

A two-time (2005, 2009) member of the LPGA Tour and an eight-year member of the LPGA Duramed Futures Tour, Howland has taken part in more than 120 events and has posted 11 top-10 finishes, highlighted by medalist honors at the 2007 Louisiana Pelican Classic. She ranks in the top 50 among the tour's career money winners. Howland also participated in the 2008 U.S. Women's Open.

"I am very excited for the opportunity that Coach Drinkard and the Ole Miss family are giving me. I am looking forward to helping Coach Drinkard continue to build on the success that the program has had over the past three years."

Howland began her collegiate career at Tri-State University and led the squad to the 1997 NAIA Women's Golf National Championship while winning individual medalist honors at the 1998 Manchester Championship and posting a runner-up finish at the 1998 Tri-State Championship. After two seasons at Tri-State, Howland transferred to Lamar University and continued to enjoy success on the links. She won the Sam Houston State Championship and the Springlake Championship in 1999.

After college, Howland won the 2001 Bermuda Match Play Championship. She also dominated women's amateur golf in Idaho, winning both the Women's Stroke Play and Match Play Championships in 2001 and 2002 before turning pro in October of 2002. Howland has been the leader of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) on the Duramed Futures Tour since 2004.
