CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s tennis program announced that Andres Pedroso has been elevated to the title of Associate Head Coach. Pedroso is entering his third season with the Cavaliers, joining the program as an assistant coach in August of 2010.
During his two years on the Virginia staff the Cavaliers have twice reached the NCAA Tournament final and finished the season ranked No. 2 nationally. He has helped lead Virginia to two ACC Championships and the 2011 ITA National Team Indoor Championship. In 2011 UVa became the first school in nearly two decades to have five players selected for the NCAA singles championship. This season the Cavaliers set a school record with five All-America selections. Pedroso was named the 2012 ITA Atlantic Region Assistant Coach of the Year, in his first year of eligibility for the award.
“Andres has played a major role in every aspect of our program and is extremely deserving of being named Associate Head Coach,” said head coach Brian Boland. “He is not only one of the finest human beings I have ever had the pleasure to work with, but he is without a doubt one of the best tennis coaches in the world. The players love working with him and he is completely committed to seeing every student athlete that comes through this program develop to their maximum potential both as tennis players but more importantly as people. Andres is a great friend and someone I have enormous respect for as does everyone associated with Virginia Tennis.”
