IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa interim head men’s tennis coach Ross Wilson announced today that Ty Schaub will join the program as an interim assistant coach. Schaub’s coaching appointment is effective immediately.
Schaub will assist Wilson in player development, practice preparation, youth camps, operational support and all aspects of recruiting.
“Ty is an experienced coach who has the passion and work ethic we are looking for to help build our program,” Wilson said.
“I could not be more excited to join the Iowa athletic department and become a Hawkeye,” said Schaub. “It’s an honor to join Ross Wilson in coaching such a passionate and hungry group of guys.”
Schaub is a 2009 graduate of Ohio State and served as team captain as a senior. He helped lead his team to a No. 1 national ranking and a spot in the NCAA team finals. Schaub, who was a teammate of Wilson in 2005-06, was part of four Big Ten championships and was the league’s Sportsmanship Award Winner in 2006-07. The four-year letter winner was part of teams that went 129-8 in dual match competition.
The native of Lexington, Ohio, joins the UI tennis program after three seasons as assistant coach at the University of Penn. During his tenure with the Quakers, Schaub helped coach Jeremy Court to All-Ivy distinction in 2012 and helped secure three top-25 recruiting classes.
Prior to his time at Penn, he coached at Cornell University (assistant for the men’s and women’s teams in 2009-10), Solaris Sport and Racquet Club (New York), and served as assistant pro at the American Yacht Club in Rye, New York. While at Cornell, he helped guide the men’s team to a second place finish in the Ivy League.
