CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s tennis program announced Friday that Tony Bresky, the team’s assistant coach for the past three years, has been named associate head coach. Bresky, the 2005 ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year, has helped head coach Brian Boland develop the Cavaliers into one of the nation’s elite programs over the past three seasons.

“I’m honored and excited to be named Associate Head Coach at the University of Virginia,” said Bresky. “I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to help Brian build this team into a program that the University and community can be proud of. Our players have been working hard and I’m looking forward to the upcoming season; we hope to build on our momentum from last year and are hopeful that better things are yet to come. With the continued support from the University, its supporters, the fans and our alumni, the future holds a lot of promise for Virginia Tennis.”

The Cavaliers have had tremendous success during Bresky’s tenure as assistant coach. Over the past three seasons, Virginia has a 71-15 record, won the last two ACC Championships, risen to No. 2 in the national rankings, twice set the school record for wins in a season, advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals, and reached the finals of National Team Indoors. During that time, the Cavaliers have had two All-Americans, five NCAA Singles and three NCAA Doubles participants, nine All-ACC selections, three ITA Regional Rookies of the Year, two ACC Freshmen of the Year, and two ACC Tournament MVPs.

“Tony has played a significant role in our success since his arrival three years ago,” said Boland. “Tony has worked extremely hard to make Virginia tennis the best it can be. He is an outstanding coach and does an excellent job working to develop the players on the court as well as assisting in all aspects of the program. I have enjoyed working with Tony and look forward to our continued success together. He is a great friend and someone that I have always enjoyed working with.”
