GW Head Women's Tennis Coach Dawn Buth to Take Position With NCAA
Athletics and Recreation to Immediately Commence Search for New Head Coach
Aug 20, 2013
WASHINGTON – The George Washington University Department of Athletics and Recreation announced today that Head Women’s Tennis Coach Dawn Buth is leaving the university to serve in her new role as Associate Director of Leadership Development for the NCAA.
"We want to thank Dawn for her service as head coach of our women’s tennis program and wish her the best of luck at the NCAA,” said Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero.
During her nine years at the helm of the program, Buth amassed a record of 89-84 and saw 16 student-athletes named to Atlantic 10 All-Conference Teams. Last season GW reached the Atlantic 10 Championship quarterfinal match for the fourth straight year, while claiming their second straight ITA All-Academic Team Award.
In 2009-10, Buth was named Atlantic 10 Women's Tennis Coach of the Year after guiding GW to a second-place finish in the Atlantic 10 - its most successful finish in 13 years - and first 11-win season since 2001-02.
"It was with great emotion that I made this decision,” said Buth. “I have had the privilege of coaching so many terrific student-athletes for the last nine years, and I want to thank every one of them for helping prepare me for this next chapter in my career. I’ll leave GW with incredibly fond memories and with gratitude to the athletic administration for their support during my tenure, and also thank all the talented assistants, athletic trainers and support staff that I've been fortunate to work with.”
A national search for GW's next women's tennis head coach will begin immediately. In the interim, Head Men’s Tennis Coach Greg Munoz will oversee both the men’s and women’s programs.
