I do not think there are many non football schools (if any) with a full time assistant. Most have a 1/4 or 1/2 part time asst at best... and some have head coaches running both genders to save money.

Sadly college tennis is about as non-revenue as it gets. Fairly cheap to run but non revenue so when they go looking for cuts there is little defense to offset the problem. This reality is likely to spread.

What drives me nuts is how tennis programs need asst's but golf teams have the same or more. They don't hit the ball back and 99% are not even teaching pros. Ok, maybe you need someone to help during a tournament but they only play 8 tournies a year. Tennis coaches actually are on court 3-4 hours per day every day HITTING THE BALL. Golf coaches are a joke.
