Dana Dormann joined the San Jose State University coaching staff in 2005 and enters her 13th season with the Spartans. After four seasons as the assistant coach, she was promoted to associate head coach in 2009.

A three-time All-American, Dormann played on the San Jose State University women's golf teams during the 1985 through 1988 seasons. She was a member of the Spartans' 1987 NCAA Championship team. Dormann was a four-time tournament winner and the 1987 Pacific Coast Athletic Association "Player of the Year." Her 76.46 stroke average for 141 rounds of college competition puts her in the top-10 all-time on the San Jose State list.

Dormann was the 1985 U.S. Junior and Junior World champion. The win at the U.S. Girls Junior Championship earned her an invitation to the 1986 U.S. Open.

The native of Oxnard, Calif., began her professional career on the Women Professional Golfers' European Tour (WPGET). In her first LPGA event, the 1991 Oldsmobile LPGA Classic, she finished in second place. She won the 1992 Las Vegas LPGA International, birdieing her last hole, and won the 1993 McCall's LPGA Classic in Stratton Mountain, Vermont. Through 2011, she played in 228 LPGA Tour events with 27 top-10 finishes and ranks among the top 150 on the all-time career earnings list.

Dormann was also a member of the 1992 and 1993 U.S. Nicheri Cup teams that competed against teams from Japan. She was the 1993 Most Valuable Golfer of the competition.

She was one of five Spartan All-Americans to make the cut at the 2006 U.S. Open and has played in 14 U.S. Women's Open Championships. She won the 2005 LPGA T-and-CP Championship for teaching and club professionals. That win garnered her an invitation to the 2006 LPGA Championship. Besides her San Jose State coaching duties, she is a teaching professional at the Pleasanton (Calif.) Golf Academy.
