Howard Joffe, women's tennis head coach at the University of Texas Longhorns, announced that the team has hired Taylor Fogleman as an assistant coach, as a replacement for Courtney Dolehide who left to Georgetown University.
In the previous 3 seasons, Fogleman served as an assistant coach at Rice University, and it was a very successful journey, with Owls winning the Conference USA championship and playing the NCAA Championships in every season of his tenure. Prior to that, Tulane was his home also for 3 years, earning the ITA Southern Region Assistant Coach of the Year award in 2013 and leading the team to the NCAA Tournament in 2014.
His Collegiate career is linked with The University of North Carolina (graduated in 2009), where he was an All-American in 2008 and 2009, reaching the NCAA Doubles quarter-final in 2008 and going one step further 12 months later.
He was ranked 3rd in the doubles and he grabbed 3 Futures titles in doubles as well, being ranked 551st in the ATP rankings.
"I'm so happy to welcome Taylor and his wife Lindsay to Austin and The University of Texas," Joffe said. "Taylor's inclusion in our group will be a huge boost for the Longhorns.
He is a top former collegiate and professional tennis player. Unquestionably, Taylor is on track to become a head coach, given his years of experience and success at Tulane and Rice. Above all else, Taylor is the classiest person.
I'm so excited for our ladies to get to meet him and work with him."
"I would really like to thank Chris Plonsky and Howard Joffe for this incredible opportunity," Fogleman said. "To have the chance to work with one of the best coaches in the country in Howard at one of the best universities in the country is a dream come true.SOURCE: Taylor Fogleman joins Women’s Tennis as assistant coach ALSO READ: ITA Summer Circuit: Standings on 12-07-2017 .
