GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida women's golf coach Jan Dowling has resigned, the school announced Saturday. She had just completed her third season with the Gators and led UF to a 12th-place finish in the NCAA championships.

Dowling spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Kent State and one season as an assistant at Duke before being hired at Florida. According to UF, Dowling told athletics director Jeremy Foley of her decision on Friday but did not tell her team until after the completion of Saturday's NCAA championships.

"My decision was extremely difficult," Dowling said in a statement. "However, I have to make the right choices for my personal life, too. I will cherish my time at Florida and wish nothing but the very best for the future of the program and the entire athletic association."
