K-State Athletic Director Gene Taylor announced on Thursday that men’s golf head coach Grant Robbins agreed to an extension through 2026-2027, according to K-State Sports.

“I am extremely honored and blessed to be at Kansas State and a part of this great University,” Robbins said to K-State Sports. “I want to thank Gene Taylor and our entire administration for their support for giving me the opportunity to lead this program. I also want to thank our associate head coach Rob Murray, as well all of our current and former players and support staff who have helped us build a strong foundation and have been instrumental in our success.”

Robbins brought K-State to the NCAA Regional appearance last spring for the first time since 2009. The team found success in the fall season being ranked as the No. 21 team in Bushnell/Golfweek D1 coaches poll. K-State has won their first two events of the season, the Wildcat Invitational and the Old Town Collegiate.

As well as his extension, Robbins promoted six-year assistant coach Rob Murray to associate head coach.

The team’s next competition will be Monday, Oct. 10, at the Oregon State Invitational.
