Former East Chapel Hill High School standout Dan Greenberg has been named head tennis coach at his alma mater, Williams College (’08), making him one of the youngest NCAA coaches in the nation.
Greenberg will coach three current Ephs who were his teammates during his playing days in seniors Nick Lebedoff and Jeremy Weinberger, and junior Ari Binder.
"I feel very fortunate to return to Williams,” said Greenberg. “I had an amazing experience here as a student-athlete, and the opportunity to come back as a coach is tremendous. I couldn't imagine a more inspiring place to work. Everyone here is dedicated to the community and to bringing out each other's best, and I look forward to dedicating myself to this great school and storied program."
One of four brothers to help East Chapel Hill win a string of state team championships , Greenberg was the 2005 Rookie of the Year and the 2008 Player of the Year for the New England Small Colleges Athletic Conference. Upon graduating from Williams, Greenberg was hired as an Assistant Pro at the Hollow Rock Racquet Club in Durham, where he was also responsible for Junior Development.
In the fall of 2008 he became a volunteer coach at the University of North Carolina where he helped plan and lead practices, provided on-court coaching and assisted with administrative duties for the Tar Heels.
