The University of Notre Dame women’s tennis program will welcome back one of its own this season as head coach Jay Louderback has announced the hiring of former Irish All-American and assistant Michelle Dasso to once again complete his staff as assistant coach.
“I am very excited to have Michelle return to the University Notre Dame women's tennis program,” Louderback said. “She brings a vast amount of head coaching experience as well as her playing experience to help develop our student-athletes. I have always had a tremendous amount of respect for Michelle as a coach, a person and a player. As a student-athlete at Notre Dame she was a fierce competitor and you could sense how much she loved playing. I observed those same traits in the student-athletes she has coached. Her passion for tennis and the University of Notre Dame make her a perfect fit.”
Dasso (‘01) replaces another former Irish All-American in Catrina Thompson, who was named the head coach at Minnesota in June.
