CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s tennis team has announced the addition of Jason Cole to the coaching staff as a Volunteer Assistant Coach. Cole comes to Virginia after a standout collegiate career at Ferris State University in Michigan.
“We are thrilled that Jason chose to join our staff at the University of Virginia,” head coach Brian Boland said. “Jason has incredible ambition to coach college tennis at the highest level and he has already done a tremendous job for us. He loves being on the court and brings a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to the job. I have no doubt that Jason will make a positive impact on our program and we look forward to continuing to work with him.”
A native of Rockford, Mich., Cole was a three-year captain during his career at Ferris State. In 2003, he reached the finals of the ITA Division II Doubles Championships. He was ranked nationally in both singles and doubles, with a national doubles ranking as high as No. 2. In 2004, he was named the ITA’s Great Lakes Region Player to Watch.
“As far as a start to collegiate coaching, there is really no better place in the country to be than Virginia,” Cole said. “Day in and day out I get to work with the best student athletes in the country as well as the best coaches. The work ethic here at Virginia is inspiring, and the amount of information and experience to gain here is limitless.”
