Sacred Heart University Pioneers signed with William Boe-Wiegaard as the new men's and women's tennis head coach for the new season. Boe-Wiegaard comes from Oslo, Norway, and he spent 8 seasons on the Pro Tour, playing numerous Futures events and trying to qualify for the Challengers and ATP tournaments, without a luck. He had his best ranking in 2014, reaching the 900th spot in doubles and 1002nd in singles. He graduated from Bates College and he was the NCAA Division III singles champion in 2006, losing in the final the year before. Now, William is ready to embrace coaching job and it will be interesting to see how he will handle it, especially working with both teams.
"We are excited to welcome William to the Pioneer family," said Deputy Director of Athletics Brad Hurlbut. "The success he saw as a collegiate student-athlete, coupled with his professional playing experience, makes him an excellent role model and leader for our tennis program's."
"I am honored to be entrusted the men's and women's tennis programs at Sacred Heart University," said Boe-Wiegaard. "I am thankful to Bobby Valentine and Brad Hurlbut and the University administration for this opportunity and look forward to being part of the Pioneer family."
