Women's Tennis Coach Minnis Contract Not Renewed

"During the course of his 21-year career at the head of the LSU program he became the longest-serving and winningest coach in the history of Lady Tiger tennis. He was named Southwest Regional Coach of the Year five times, Louisiana Coach of the Year three times and Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year in 1997.

"The LSU tennis team finished 11-13 in 2012, the third consecutive losing season for the Lady Tigers."

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

Has anybody heard anything about the William and Mary head coaching job?

GaTech is open. Bryan Shelton has left to the men's head coach at Florida.

This may be the bombshell of the offseason as the Florida AD poaches another coach from his alma mater.

With Shelton gone, I'll be curious to see who Georgia Tech can get and how much of its #1 ranked recruiting class actually matriculates considering that Bryan's been pretty much the only reason big time recruits have signed there over the past decade. Regardless, I think the end result is that their days as a contender are over.

Good news for UGA fans, I guess

I was surprised by this and feel bad for Shelton's incoming recruiting class because as you said, many of them signed to go to Georgia Tech for the "coaching" (i.e. Bryan Shelton).

Read a tweet saying congratulations to former Stanford standout, Laura Granville, named head coach of Princeton women's tennis program.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

I'm surprised, but happy for Coach Shelton. I've followed GT since 2008 and befriended a few players and I remember the first time I met Coach Shelton face-to-face at the 10k in ATL and was just in awe. He is such a smart and insightful coach and UF is lucky to get him. It's a shame he's leaving GT because he has brought so much to that school and I can't see him anywhere else. I just feel for the incoming recruiting class (and Elizabeth Kilborn, their lone senior) as he is a majority of the reason they committed. He utilizes a player's potential and adds more. It'll be interesting how the program changes and how everything will pan out.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

It happens to all programs! Same thing happened at Michigan 5 years ago with 4 new recruits coming in. They got the word in July that Amanda Augustus, the coach at the time that recruited them had resigned and taken the job at Cal! That's part of the business! Michigan hired a very good coach and never lost a beat after losing Augustus!

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

Yes, interesting on the Santa Barbara story. Should be easier to recruit players in Santa Barbara than for Fresno.
