HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Jerry Weeks came to Hattiesburg in 1981. He stayed for good reason.
The University of Alabama graduate spent 25 years as the Director of Golf Operations at the Hattiesburg County Club and has coached Southern Miss golf for the last 12 seasons.
However, earlier this year Weeks announced that he would be retiring after USM's spring season.
"Number one I've been doing this now for 12 years and loved every minute of it," Weeks said. "I've been in the golf business now for about 40 years and I think it's just time that I do something different. I've got a young grandson that I want to get involved with a lot more. I'm looking forward to that and just being more with my family."
