CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia men's tennis program announced Thursday that associate head coach Andres Pedroso will be leaving the program at the end of the month. Pedroso, the 2014 ITA Assistant Coach of the Year, is returning home to south Florida for a private coaching opportunity.
"Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of working with two world-class coaches in Brian Boland and Scott Brown, and many spectacular student-athletes that have played a significant role in my development as a coach, mentor and human being," said Pedroso. "Coach Boland has always emphasized to our team that life is all about building quality relationships and I can honestly say that the relationships are what I am going to miss most about Virginia. My wife, Erika, and I have experienced nothing but love, support and friendship from everyone associated with UVa Tennis and for that, we will always be truly grateful. Thank you for an incredible four years and there is no question that the best is yet to come for UVa Men's Tennis."
In his four seasons at Virginia, Pedroso helped lead the Cavaliers to the most successful era in school history. The program won its first NCAA Championship in 2013, in addition to two ITA National Team Indoor titles (2011, 2013) and four ACC championships. Pedroso coached six All-Americans during his tenure in Charlottesville, including 2013 ITA National Player of the Year Jarmere Jenkins, the 2013 NCAA Doubles Champion team of Jenkins and Mac Styslinger and ITA All-American champions Alex Domijan and Mitchell Frank. Pedroso was a two-time ITA Atlantic Region Assistant Coach of the Year (2012, 2014), in addition to receiving the national award last year.
"Andres Pedroso will be truly missed," said head coach Brian Boland. "He is without question one of the best coaches in the world, and is an even better person. We were all so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Andres over the past four years. He had such a positive impact on our program and was instrumental in us winning our first NCAA championship. His work ethic, integrity and ability to teach the game is phenomenal. I have considered it a tremendous honor to have worked with Andres over the past four years and he has left a lasting impact. Everyone at UVa and in the Charlottesville community will miss him and his family. With that said, we are happy for him and his young family to have an opportunity to return home."
