Entering his 18th season as the head golf coach at Fordham in 2012-13 is Paul Dillon.
The 2011-12 campaign was highlighted by three team wins and an individual second place showing by Devon O'Rourke. The team titles came in the FDU Invitational in the fall season and the La Salle and Rhode Island competitions in the spring season. O'Rourke's second place showing also came in the La Salle Invitational.
In the 2010-11 season, Dillon helped Fordham to three third-place finishes and a pair of second-position showings. The team came in third at the Colgate Fall Invitational, the Bucknell Fall Invitational and the New England Division I Championship. The runner-up positions came in the FDU Invitational and the Mount St. Mary's Spring Invitational.
In 2009-10, Dillon guided the Rams to seven top five finishes, which included the 2009 ECAC Championship team title.
