  Arkansas-Monticello has a new golf coach and he is no stranger to UAM athletics.

   Monticello's Joe Fakouri (UAM '74) was recently selected to lead the Boll Weevil golf team, according to UAM Athletic Director Alvy Early.

   Fakouri brings a wealth of knowledge to the squad, as the former UAM quarterback has over 35 years experience in the golf field, and he has coordinated several area tournaments at the Monticello Country Club.

   "We're extremely pleased to have Joe coming on board," Early said. "I feel with his knowledge, he will be able to lead our golf squad to new heights."
