Duncan Hired as Men's Tennis Assistant Coach
Aug. 7, 2002
EUGENE, Ore. - The University of Oregon has hired Ross Duncan as its men's tennis assistant coach, eighth-year head coach Chris Russell announced Wednesday.
Duncan served as the assistant coach at UC Santa Barbara in the 1999-00 season. A native of Johannesburg, South Africa, he played collegiately for Pepperdine for two years before transferring to UCSB in 1996, where he compiled a 40-23 singles and 22-9 doubles records. He is currently playing club tennis in Germany.
'Ross brings an enormous amount of playing experience and international connections,' Russell said. 'However, one of his best attributes is his character and work ethic-it is hard to find anyone to say a bad word about him.'
Duncan, an All-Big West First Team selection in 1997, graduated from UCSB in 1999 with a degree in religious studies.
The Ducks finished 12-11 in dual matches last year. Their 2002-03 season begins Oct. 4 at the All-American Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn.
