Campus Notes
June 2005

By far the biggest news in college tennis this past month has been the resignation of Illinois coach Craig Tiley. While it had been rumored that he was considering the newly created position at the USTA as "Senior Director, Junior and Collegiate Competition," Coach Tiley shocked everyone by instead accepting a position as the Director of Player Development for Tennis Australia. During his 12 year run at Illinois, Coach Tiley led his team to eight straight Big Ten regular season titles, eight Big Ten Tournament championships, two national indoor championships and the 2003 NCAA Men's Tennis Championship, where Illinois swept the singles, doubles and team events. There will be an announcement in the next two weeks regarding his replacement.
