Men's golf at the 2013 Bill Cullum Invitational hosted by CS Northridge

LMU Athletics Director Dr. William Husak announced on June 25, 2013 Brad Lanning as the third head coach of the men's golf program in the history of the program. He completed his third season in 2015-16.

In his first season he helped then senior Tyler Torano advance to the NCAA West Regional and then repeated the task in 2015 as then junior Connor Campbell, who placed third at the WCC Championships that season, advanced to the NCAA Regional.

In his third season, the Lions won their first team championship at a tournament since 2009, winning the Bill Cullum Invitational on Oct. 19-20. The Lions also hosted their first tournament since 2006 when they held the LMU Invitational honoring Jerry Mook in February at Reflection Bay Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nev.

Lanning joined Martin's staff at Oregon in July of 2011 and in two seasons the Ducks went to the NCAA Regionals and in 2011-12, Oregon earned a third place finish at the NCAA Golf Championships, its best finish ever in 26 trips to the NCAA tournament.

The two years at Oregon wasn't the first time Lanning and Martin paired for success. They were teammates for three seasons at Stanford, helping the Cardinal win the 1994 NCAA Championship. Lanning graduated that season with a degree in Political Science and then earned his Master's in Counseling at Denver Seminary in 2011.

After Stanford, Lanning spent six years playing professionally on the Hooters Tour, South American Tour and the Canadian PGA tour, while also working as a stock broker before entering the coaching ranks.

It didn't take long for success to reach Lanning as a coach, helping St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Bradenton, Fla., to a state title and a state runner-up finish in two years as an assistant coach. After moving to Colorado, he entered the master's program at Denver and assisted Valor Christian High School to a pair of state championships in his three seasons with the team.

He has also served on camp coaching staffs for the University of Florida and his alma mater. Lanning and his wife have a son and a daughter.
