NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame men’s tennis program will see one of its own take the next step in his career, as Callaghan Family Head Men’s Tennis Coach Ryan Sachire announced 2014 graduate and volunteer assistant coach Greg Andrews will assume full-time assistant coach duties effective June 15th.
Andrews, who joined the Irish coaching staff in March 2017, will take over in a full-time capacity for departing associate head coach Adam Schaechterle, who was named head coach at Pepperdine last month.
"I am beyond excited for Greg (Andrews) to join our staff - his experience, work ethic and all-encompassing commitment to excellence will make a tremendous impact on our program,” said Sachire. “Throughout his time at Notre Dame, both as a player and as a coach, Greg has consistently demonstrated both the will and the aptitude to achieve success at the highest level.”
I could not be more grateful to Coach Sachire and Notre Dame for the opportunity to help lead our program,” said Andrews. “I feel truly blessed to continue learning from one of the best head coaches in the country at a place near and dear to my heart. I can’t wait to get to work to provide an unparalleled experience to our student-athletes both on and off the court.”
In his one-plus season on the Irish staff, Andrews helped the Irish qualify for the 2018 ITA National Indoor Team Championship, reach the 2018 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship semifinals, win their first NCAA tournament match since 2014 and send two players (Josh Hagar and Alex Lebedev) to the the NCAA Singles Championship.
