CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia men’s tennis associate head coach Dustin Taylor has been named the co-recipient of the 2017 ITA Assistant Coach of the Year in national honors announced today (May 23) by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
Since Taylor arrived at Virginia three years ago, the Cavaliers have won two NCAA titles, an ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship, two ACC Tournament championships and two ACC regular-season crowns. Taylor is always on the courts, hitting, instructing, guiding and helping the team get better, as they stand one victory away from a third straight NCAA Championship.
Taylor is the third Cavalier to earn this honor, joining Tony Bresky (2005) and Andres Pedroso (2014).
Taylor and Ohio State’s Justin Kronauge were named the co-recipients of this year’s honor.
The recipient of the ITA National Coach of the Year award will be announced in the weeks after the conclusion of the NCAA Championship.
