Just looked, don't see that anywhere. Diane is still listed as head coach. She is one of Fantic's big timers from USC.

Good hire tennis wise. Gonna change a lot of things there.. intensity to start. More agressive recruiting next. And he's a fairly good X & O coach.

If they fund him up a little more (int'ls) they could be super strong. Having said that, his super strong teams included girls that should not have been eligible in MHO (Gloria and # 2 Russian.. both serious prize money as I recall)... most recent 3 classes have tailed off for either recruiting, admissions or geographic reasons... plus lousy academics at Fresno too. Maybe the Euro girls figured out it was a crappy place to live for four years?

Can't blame him for leaving.

Compete: YES... maybe not year one with the graduations and no recruiting this year... but that could leave him wide open to make a huge impact a year from now.

He will change the culture... this is a SERIOUS tennis coach; not someone who lets the team run the roost.

Lastly, he has his hands full with several of the current team who are 'interesting' on court and rumored to have been part of the coup that took out the old coach. Good luck changing the crew without starting a riot THIS YEAR.

But down road, if UCSB can give him funding and int'l admissions, they could supplant several traditional BW schools. Easy recruiting of CA kids if you can offer just a bit more money... # 1 choice behind the four Calif. Pac 12 schools.

Having said that, if the CA state budget gets any worse it ain't gonna matter for anyone but SD State (football money) and Hawaii (football money). The UC's could face as bad or worse tuition/fee increases than the CSU's are getting.

Next question: Who does Fresno hire? Yikes... terrible place to live.

Apparently some of the girls on the team are unhappy with her as a coach. That explains some of the transfers and there are even more players asking for releases from the team. And I talked to a girl that will be going to school there who was just told today that Diane had been fired.

Obviously I can't be 100% since there has been no official statement from Maryland but I am just relaying the message I have heard from multiple girls on the team.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1



I just realized that this Dianne lady used to teach me tennis back in the day....when I hated tennis and didn't care for it.

So that's the university in Maryland she went to....

My world has gotten so much smaller, and if this rumor is true, that's sad.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

I remember seeing Dianne was listed as an interim head coach. Was she ever upgraded to full head coach? That could be the reason why she was it for only a year.

I assumed the person that mentioned it knew! I also saw she was still listed as their coach on the website and saw she was promoted to head coach last July so it would seem strange to not give someone more then a year even though she was the assitant coach before that!

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

Lots of deck chairs moving this year

Maryland still has not indicated a coaching change nor pulled Dianne's info as head coach so this appears to be a false rumor?

Fresno did not make an announcment their coach left but did pull his bio and info

Thompson did a nice job at Minnesota; now they have an opening like Fresno, GT and Stephen Austin.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

Drake Bernstein, who as an assistant helped lead the University of Alabama to it's highest school ranking ever this past year has been named assistant womens tennis coach at his Alma Mater, the University of Georgia. I would think he would make a noticible
impact on the Georgia program.

Does anyone know why Frank Polito left? Frank is one of the best recruiters around. He and Jeff Wallace had worked together for a long time. His contributions will be very hard to replace.

He was let go. You might think he was a great recruiter because of the players that came to UGA but the talent level there top to bottom has declined in his time there. Gullickson aside, the current team is not classic Georgia level talent.
