Santa Clara tabs Mills as men's tennis coach

Derek Mills, who coached the men's and women's teams at St. Louis University the past two seasons, is returning to the Bay Area after being named men's tennis at Santa Clara.

Mills attended Sacred Heart Cathedral in San Francisco.

Mills has spent the past six years working with top junior players in Honolulu. Previously, he was an assistant coach at Brigham Young (1997-98) and Northwest Missouri State (1994-97).

“I am excited to come to another Jesuit university after coaching at St. Louis University in the past,” Mills said in a statement released by the school. “There is a solid core of players here and I look forward to working with them. I would like to thank [athletic director] Dan Coonan and [senior associate athletic director] Jonathan Clough for bringing me to Santa Clara. We want to contend for the WCC championship every year and a spot in the NCAA tournament.”
