Former San Jose State All-American Brandon Coupe has been named assistant men's tennis coach at Stanford, the school announced Wednesday.
Coupe spent 10 years playing on the ATP Tour and has served as the head pro at Tiburon Peninsula Club since 2003.
A winner of the Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship Award during his career at San Jose State, Coupe reached the semifinals of the 1994 NCAA Indoor Championships.
“I had been thinking of coaching at the college level since my professional career concluded,” Coupe said. “Like a lot of people, I have always had tremendous respect for Stanford players and coaches, both on and off the court. I now look forward to coaching some of the most outstanding student-athletes in the world. I thank coach [John] Whitlinger and Stanford for the opportunity.”
