Montreat College has announced the hiring of Andrew Cobb to lead the men's & women's tennis program. Cobb joins Montreat after spending the past two years on the coaching staff at fellow AAC member school Reinhardt University. Cobb made an immediate impact on the Eagle tennis program during his tenure on the coaching staff as both the men's and women's teams enjoyed unprecedented success. During the 2015 season, the women's team earned their first AAC regular season championship. The men's team would go on to win the 2015 AAC tournament championship and advance to their first NAIA national tournament. At the NAIA National tournament, Cobb's men upset Westmont College and ended the season with a #15 national ranking.
Prior to his time coaching at Reinhardt, Cobb was a member of the Eagle's tennis team where he earned AAC Player of the Week honors on three occasions. Cobb is also certified as a USTPA Elite Professional and has extensive experience as an academy coach.
"I'm thrilled to have Coach Cobb join our Montreat College athletic family," says Montreat College Athletic Director Jose Larios. "His role at Reinhardt University was paramount to their success in the past few years. We expect he will bring great energy and focus to our men's and women's tennis program. Andrew's recruiting drive and his clear understanding of our intentional Christ-centered mission was key to his candidacy."
