Texas Tech Tennis Coach Tim Siegel to Retire
After more than 20 years at the helm of the Texas Tech Tennis program, Head Coach Tim Siegel will retire. Siegel is the longest serving coach at Texas Tech and enters his 21st season this spring.
Texas Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt said of Siegel, “His positive impact and influence on hundreds of student-athletes has been exceptional. Tim’s leadership role within the department and with Texas Tech Tennis has been exemplary and highlighted by his role in building The Don and Ethel McLeod Tennis Center, which ranks as one of the finest facilities in the Big 12 Conference.”
Last season, Siegel had one of his best seasons on the sideline for Tech Tennis as the Red Raiders finished 16-9 with a 2nd place finish in the Big 12 Conference. Siegel’s career record as head coach is 333-253.
“The last 20-plus years have been incredible,” said Siegel. “I want to thank all of my players, my assistant coaches and every Texas Tech administrator who has helped me along the way. I want to thank T. Jones for hiring me in December of 1992.”
Texas Tech opens the spring season January 16th hosting Texas-Pan American.
