Brown coach Dave Schwarz steps down, heads to Claremont-Mudd Scripps
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Dave Schwarz has stepped down as head men’s tennis coach at Brown after four seasons to accept a new position as head coach of the women’s tennis team at Claremont-Mudd Scripps. A national search will begin immediately.
Schwarz was named the head men’s tennis coach at Brown in September 2010 after a 10-year tenure as head coach at Middlebury. Schwarz posted a 58-35 overall record in four seasons at Brown, including a 16-6 mark in 2010-11.
Under Schwarz’ guidance, Middlebury won four consecutive NESCAC titles (2004-07), winning in 2009 and '10. His team made eight consecutive trips to the NCAA national semifinals, with the 2004 squad capturing the school’s first NCAA Tennis Championship. Schwarz’s 2006 and '07 teams set school records with 22 wins at the time, a mark that was eclipsed in 2010 when the Panthers earned a 23-2 mark.
The ITA Division III National Coach of the Year in 2004, Schwarz ran the Elite College Prospects Camp at Brown for the past three years.
A 1989 graduate of Cornell, where he played four years of varsity tennis, Schwarz began his collegiate coaching career in the fall of 1996 as the assistant men’s and women’s tennis coach at Cornell.
Following one year in that role, Schwarz was the assistant men’s coach (1997-2000), spending the 1998-99 season as an assistant with the women as well.
