The Bradford, Pa. native enters his 17th season as the head men's golf coach in 2018.

Stauffer was fittingly named the 2018 AMCC Coach of the Year for the second-straight season after guiding the Panthers to their first conference title since 2002. 

Led by individual medalist Johnny Fiore's 146, Pitt-Bradford cut 14 strokes from its day-one performance on the second day, firing a 306 to secure a comfortable conference title with a combined score of 626 -- nine strokes ahead of the AMCC Runner-Up Penn State-Behrend (635). 

With the conference victory, Pitt-Bradford earns the AMCC's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championships May 14-17, 2019, at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, KY. 

In his first year at the helm, Stauffer led the Panthers to the 2002 AMCC Championship with a score of 306 -- the program's lone conference title.

The following season, the Panthers won the ECAC Southern Region Championship, which earned them a spot in the ECAC Division III Championship in Rochester, N.Y.

In 11 of his 16 full seasons, Stauffer's squads have finished in the top five in the AMCC Championship.

Under Stauffer's guidance, eight players have been named to the AMCC All-Conference First Team, including two AMCC Players of the Year (Fran Palumbo in 2002 and Brian Leljedal in 2004). Also, Tyler Cozad was named the conference's Newcomer of the Year in 2009. Johnny Fiore became Pitt-Bradford's first ever individual medalist at the AMCC Championships, leading the Panthers to a conference title in 2018.

Pitt-Bradford finished fourth in the conference in 2016 and 2017.

Highlighting the 2017 season was the best score in program history, a 301 team score good enough for a first-place finish. The program's previous low score was a 306, first coming in 2002 and later tied in 2006.

Stauffer attended Bradford High School and graduated in 1981, where he played football, basketball and golf.  He received a Bachelors of Science Degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1985. At IUP, he participated in two NCAA Division II National Tournaments where the team finished in seventh and eleventh place, respectively. In 1984, he was the runner-up in the ECAC Championship at Colgate University. 

Personally, he has won over 15 Club Championships at Pine Acres Country Club dating back to 1984. He's qualified for two U.S. Amateur Championships and played in two Porter Cup Championships (a premier amateur championship) in Niagara Falls, N.Y. 

Keith and his wife, Mary Anne, reside in Bradford.
