TUCSON, Ariz. -- Greg Allen has resigned as Arizona women's golf coach to take the same post at Vanderbilt, the Tucson university announced Tuesday.

Allen coached the Wildcats since 2000, directing them to Pac-10 titles his first two seasons and a runner-up finish in the NCAA championships in 2002. Among his pupils was Lorena Ochoa, now the No. 1 ranked player on the LPGA tour.

At Vanderbilt, Allen replaces Martha Richards, who resigned last month to take the head coaching position at Texas.
