Tony Bresky, men's tennis head coach at Wake Forest Demon Deacons, announced that Drew Lied will join his coaching staff as the new volunteer assistant coach for the new season. In the past season, Drew worked as a women's assistant coach at the University of Iowa, helping the Hawkeyes to win 16 matches and to start the season with an amazing 9-0 run. Prior to that, Lied was an assistant men's tennis coach at Washington and Lee University, and in 2015 he served as a volunteer assistant coach at Marquette University, reaching the final of the Big East Tournament.
Drew played Collegiate tennis at Michigan State Spartans, finishing his career with 73 singles and 86 doubles wins. With him in the squad, the Spartans reached the NCAA tournament for the first time in history, and he earned numerous Big Ten honors.
"Drew will be an outstanding addition to our coaching staff," said Bresky. "He was an excellent player at Michigan State, having played No. 1 singles. In addition, he has several years of college coaching experience and is looking to pursue a career as a college tennis coach.
We are lucky to have him join us and look forward to working with him."
"I am very grateful for the opportunity that Tony (Bresky) and Chris (Eaton) have given me," said Lied. "It's an honor to be a part of such a great program and I am excited to get to work to help this team achieve its goals."SOURCE: Lied Joins Men's Tennis Staff ALSO READ: Drake University hires Alex Emery as an assistant coach
