LEBANON, Tenn.--It is with great sadness the Cumberland University athletics department announces men's and women's bowling coach Lynne Jordan has passed away.
"It's hard to believe that we have lost a great man and coach at Cumberland University," Director of Athletics Ron Pavan said. "Lynne was a great husband, father, grandpa, and coach that loved his bowling team and community. He always had a great story or joke that would brighten your day and would make you laugh."
Before his time at Cumberland, Jordan was the head coach for both the boys and girls teams at Lebanon High School from 2011-14 where they won one district, region, and sectional championships. During his four years as head coach at LHS, 12 of the Lebanon High bowlers were ranked in the Top 20 in the state and compiled a 282-54 record during Jordan’s tenure as both an assistant and head coach for the Blue Devils.
He and his wife, Annette, have one daughter Chesaney and one son Ryan.
