Departed in December 2012 taking head coach position at Dalton State College.

Ben was named full-time assistant with the men's golf program in May of 2010 after serving one year as a student assistant while finishing his degree in psychology.  He assists head coach Mark Guhne in all aspects of managing the program including recruiting, equipment purchasing, practice and on-course coaching.

His greatest claim to fame came at the 2012 United States Amateur final. With Steven Fox two down through 18 holes, Rickett took over the bag as caddie. Fox ended up leveling the match on the final hole after being two down and dormie with two to play. He won the match on the 37th hole crediting his caddie's stellar work.

Rickett was a four-year letterwinner for the Mocs playing 116 rounds in his four seasons averaging 73.66 strokes per rounds.  His best year came as a senior in 2008-09 where he led the team ranking No. 107 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index.

That year, Rickett posted a team-best four top 10 finishes and eight top 20.  He earned PING All-East Region honors along with his second All-SoCon honor.  His best finish was tied for second at the Aldila Scenic City Invitational shooting 205 (-11).  Most impressive finish was tying for eighth at the PING Golfweek Preview (212, -1).

Ben carded 16 rounds in the 60s for his career, 39 par or better with 10 top 10s.  He tied for second twice at the Aldila Scenic City Invitational in 2007 and 2008 with his 2007 result of 11-under par 205 serving as his career best.  His low of 66 came at the 2007 Scenic City. He counted in 60 of his final 68 team rounds.

A native of Surrey, England, Rickett is a former top 100 in the world as an amateur. He made match play at the 2009 British Amateur as well as several English Amateurs reaching the round of 16 in 2006.
