COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland landed Kyle Spencer, Baylor’s assistant director of tennis and the reigning national assistant coach of the year, to lead its men’s tennis program. Spencer, who has also coached at the professional level and played in the Olympics, was hired Tuesday as Maryland’s head men’s tennis coach. Spencer spent the last three seasons at Baylor, which finished among the top 10 nationally each year. The Bears also captured both the Big 12 Conference regular season and tournament titles each of those seasons.”Coach Spencer is a terrific fit for Maryland,” director of athletics Deborah A. Yow said. “He has been an integral part of a nationally-recognized program and we believe he will elevate our program to the same status over time.”
Spencer and the Bears are coming off another successful season, reaching the quarterfinals of the 2009 NCAA Championship and finishing the year No. 7 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings. For his efforts, Spencer was named the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year last month.
Debbie Yow’s track record at hiring new coaches is phenomenal, my assumption is she has landed another Winner!!!!! Most of this info came from umterps.com.
