Assistant coach Marty McCauley has had an immediate positive impact on the program since arriving at Texas Tech in 2005. The Red Raiders have enjoyed some of the best seasons in school history, highlighted by the program's three trips to the NCAA Championships in his four seasons and four-straight NCAA regional appearances.
His influence also was witnessed in the individual successes of one of Tech's strongest lineups in school history in 2006-07. Oscar Floren earned PING All-America First Team honors, while Andrew Dresser picked up a third-team nod. Tech was one of only three schools to place multiple players on the three teams. Additionally, Tech's freshman trio were dominant late during that season and in the NCAA regionals.
McCauley arrived at Texas Tech after serving as the assistant coach for the Oklahoma City University's men's golf team during the previous two seasons. Highlighting his time with the Stars was the 2002 NAIA National Championship as well as a pair of Sooner Athletic Conference titles. During those two years, the Oklahoma City men's golf program produced eight All-Americans as well as two Academic All-Americans.
Prior to his coaching stint at Oklahoma City University, the Cushing, Okla., native played collegiate golf at Wichita State University from 1999-2002. McCauley helped the Shockers capture a pair of Missouri Valley Conference Championships prior to his graduation in December of 2002. Additionally, he received all-conference academic honors from the MVC during his career.
As a prep player at Cushing High School, McCauley finished his career with back-to-back state Class 3A individual titles in 1997 and 1998.
McCauley and his wife, Sara, were married in August 2008.
