HOUSTON--- University of Houston volunteer assistant women's tennis coach Daniel Whitehead has been promoted to the position of assistant coach, head coach Patrick Sullivan announced Monday.

Whitehead spent the 2014 spring campaign as a volunteer assistant on Sullivan's staff, helping guide the Cougars to a 21-6 overall record and their first NCAA Tournament berth since 1998.

"I'm extremely excited and grateful for this opportunity," said Whitehead. "This is a great group and I feel very fortunate to be a part of it. I want to thank Patrick, as well as the entire administration for giving me the opportunity to continue to help build this program."

Before arriving at Houston, Whitehead spent 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 he was also 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.

Whitehead replaces former assistant coach Stephanie Wooten, who stepped down at the end of the season, as she's expected to get married later this summer.
