C.J. Konkowski enters his second season as an assistant coach with the Franklin Pierce University men's and women's golf programs in 2016-17.
No stranger to Rindge, Konkowski makes his collegiate coaching debut in the same place he opened his career as a student-athlete. He was a member of the 2011-12 squad before transferring to the University of New Hamsphire to finish his studies. Konkowski cointributed as a freshman at Franklin Pierce and was a member of the team which earned the program's first berth to NCAA Championship play.
Despite just one year on the links for the crimson and grey, Konkowski posted a handful of highlights during his time as a Raven, highlighted by a two-shot victory in the second Franklin Pierce Invitational of that spring. Just three weeks prior, he had tied for the low 36-hold score of the first Franklin Pierce Invitational of the spring, though he was ultimately defeated on the first playoff hole. In the fall, Konkowski had tied for second, two shots off the lead, while leading the Ravens to the team title at the fall edition of the Franklin Pierce Invitational. In the postseason that fall, he fired a 74-83--157 (+13) to place 16th at the Northeast-10 Championship.
Originally from West Chesterfield, N.H., Konkowski graduated from New Hampshire in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in business and is pursuing his master's degree at Franklin Pierce.
