Mussani’s first coaching assignment was as an assistant coach of the women’s golf team at Stanford University from 2008-2010. Since returning to Canada, Mussani has served as a volunteer assistant to the University of British Columbia’s Golf Team and currently works as an instructor at a number of established clubs in British Columbia, including the Vancouver Golf Club.
