Tampa, Fla. -- The University of South Florida Department of Athletics has hired Agustin Moreno as head women's tennis coach, USF Director of Intercollegiate
Athletics Doug Woolard announced Monday afternoon.
Moreno's extensive coaching resume includes a wealth of international experience guiding women's programs. For five years he served as the head coach of the Mexican Women's Federation Cup Team (1999-2003) and during that time also mentored Mexico's Women's Continental Cup Team (2001), an 18-and-under squad, and Women's Pan-American Team (2004). The Federation Cup is the women's equivalent of the Davis Cup on the men's side.
"Coach Moreno brings a wealth of intercollegiate tennis knowledge from on and off the court, and we're excited to attract him to USF," Woolard said. "He has been a part of three elite tennis programs - as a coach at Georgia and TCU - and as a student-athlete at Pepperdine. His success as the coach of Mexico's Women's Federation Cup Team also speaks highly of his talents."
Georgia advanced to the NCAA Championship Quarterfinals in 2004-05 and concluded the year ranked No. 7 in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll. The roster also featured the No. 1 ranked and NCAA Champion doubles tandem and several other nationally ranked singles players.
"We're really sorry to see Agustin leave the program," said Georgia head coach Manuel Diaz. "But at the same time we are extremely happy to see him receive this great opportunity. I am sure he will do an outstanding job for the Bulls. A lot of our success over the last two years can be attributed to his hard work recruiting and developing players. He has surely made his mark on our program and he will always be a welcomed member of the Bulldog family."
