I agree with below. Probably making More money than 90% of the Division I tennis coaches in the country. Might be stuck at AASU because big Programs won't give him the chance and smaller D1's aren't worth the move. I don't know the guy, But have seen his team's play and the guy can recruit and coach it.

He's probably happier than we know right where he is.
