BUCKHANNON – Jay Evans has stepped down as West Virginia Wesleyan head men's and women's tennis coach to pursue another opportunity, WVWC Athletic Director Randy Tenney announced Monday.
“I appreciate all that Coach Evans had done while at Wesleyan,” Tenney said. “We wish him success in the future.”
Evans took the helm of Bobcat tennis in July of 2020 and led the Wesleyan men to their 12th consecutive NCAA Regional appearance in 2021.
He coached five All-Mountain East selections while leading the men's team to a runner-up finish in the MEC and a season-ending No. 4 ranking in the Atlantic Region. Both programs were named ITA All-Academic teams during the 2020-21 season.
“I am grateful for the opportunity provided to me at West Virginia Wesleyan,” Evans said. “I want to thank Coach Tenney, President Thierstein and all of the WVWC community for their support during my time as a Bobcat. I wish nothing but success to the program and student-athletes in the future.”
The process to fill the position of WVWC head tennis coach will begin immediately.
