Texas Tech Men’s Tennis Coach Tim Siegel Postponing Retirement

Texas Tech’s head men’s tennis coach has decided to forgo his retirement for now.

Tim Siegel originally announced that he would retire at the conclusion of the 2013 season, but has decided to stay on as head coach.

“After several discussions with the athletic administration and my family, I feel the decision to retire was premature,” said Siegel. “What I realized is I still have a tremendous amount of passion to coach, teach, and develop student athletes.”

He continued, saying “I cannot wait to get started with next year’s team. It is a team built on freshmen and sophomores. I am as hungry and as energetic as when I arrived in 1993.”

Siegel was 15-11 last season, and finished the year ranked 51st in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Top 75. His squads have been ranked in the ITA Top 75 since March 2002, a period of more than 11 consecutive years, according to Texas Tech.

Siegel has a career men’s coaching record of 298-224, and will begin his 22nd season at Texas Tech and his 25th overall this fall.

Prior to coaching the Red Raiders, he coached the SMU women for two seasons and the Texas Tech women as well. He has been honored as Big 12 Coach of the Year twice.
