NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma’s Bill Allcorn has been selected recipient of the 2021 Jan Strickland Outstanding Assistant Coach Award presented by TaylorMade Golf Company as selected by the GCAA. The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or NJCAA assistant coach that, among other things, has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom.
Heading into his fifth season with the Sooners, Allcorn and his team are coming off a program-best season which resulted in a runner-up finish at the NCAA National Championship. Tying a school record of five team wins, Allcorn’s squad was the consensus No. 1 team in the country heading into postseason play.

“It’s such an honor to be named this year’s recipient of the Jan Strickland Award,” Allcorn told the GCAA. “Our game is filled with outstanding assistant coaches...I’m lucky to be surrounded by the best head coach in the business and student-athletes that come to practice and workouts each day wanting to be great.
