Women's Tennis Adds Whitehead to Coaching Staff

Daniel Whitehead

Jan. 6, 2014

HOUSTON--- Former University of Texas standout Daniel Whitehead becomes the latest addition to the Cougar women's tennis coaching staff, as he's been brought aboard as a volunteer assistant coach effective immediately, Cougars' head coach Patrick Sullivan announced Monday.

"I'm very pleased to add Daniel to our staff," said Sullivan. "As a player he was an outstanding competitor, and knows firsthand what it is like to be a part of an elite program with a strong positive culture."

"Both in the juniors and in college he was coached by some of the best in the business, and those lessons learned stay with you and determine the type of coach that you become. As we try to establish a winning tradition here in Houston, we're excited to add a young and high-character coach who is going to be able to relate well to our team and help establish the culture and expectations that come with being part of an elite program."

Whitehead comes to Houston after spending the 2013 fall campaign as a volunteer assistant coach for the men's tennis team at Rice.

As a player he was a two-year team captain for a Longhorn squad that finished in the top 25 all four years he was there, while being ranked as high as No. 3 in the nation. Whitehead earned All-Big 12 Athlete honors multiple times, while also being named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Role on four separate occasions.

Whitehead was a top-100 NCAA singles and doubles player for the majority of his college career, while his 86 career singles victories at Texas ranks 21st all-time in school history.

Before competing at UT, the Houston, Texas native was ranked No. 1 in the state in the boys' 14, 16, and 18 age divisions. He was also ranked as high as No. 27 nationally in the USTA boys 16 division.

Whitehead earned his bachelor's degree in physical culture and sport from the University of Texas in 2013.
