Head Coach Greg Wyzykowski Steps Down, Seton Hall to Search for Successor

May 19, 2016

South Orange, N.J. - Seton Hall tennis head coach Greg Wyzykowski has resigned his position effective immediately, Seton Hall Vice President and Director of Athletics & Recreation Pat Lyons announced Thursday. A national search for his successor will begin immediately.

“I want to thank Coach Wyzykowski for his nine years of service with our tennis program,” Lyons said. “He did a terrific job working with our student-athletes, who have excelled in the classroom and have always represented our University with class. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Wyzykowski was appointed the Pirates head coach in September 2007 and guided the team to 64 dual match victories in his nine seasons. The team advanced to the BIG EAST Championship five times. Under his guidance, Seton Hall garnered its first-ever All-BIG EAST selections as Chloe Sher (2012-14) and Hannah Liljekvist (2014-16) were each three-time All-Conference honorees.

Under Wyzykowski’s guidance, Sher finished her sophomore season ranked No. 16 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Northeast Region rankings of June 2012. Less than two years later, Sher and her doubles partner, Rocio Portela, earned an ITA Northeast Region doubles ranking of No. 9 (January 2014). Sher and Portela shattered the school’s record books in doubles, winning 59 matches together, more than double any previous Pirate doubles pairings.

Academically, Wyzykowski recruited and mentored student-athletes who blossomed in the classroom. The team was the recipient of the ITA Academic Team Award in each of his nine years and the recipient of the NCAA’s APR Public Recognition Award each of the last four years and every single one of his student-athletes have been inducted into the Chi Alpha Sigma National Student-Athlete Honor Society. The program has also had a wealth of BIG EAST Academic All-Stars and Seton Hall Dean’s List honorees.
