Former Cardinal standout PAUL GOLDSTEIN has been named Stanford’s men’s tennis head coach by Jaquish & Kenninger Director of Athletics BERNARD MUIR.
Goldstein becomes the 10th head coach in school history and only the third since 1967, following a successful 10-year stint by John Whitlinger, who announced his retirement on May 29 after guiding Stanford to a 160-85 overall record and nine NCAA Tournament appearances.
“I am humbled, honored, but most of all inspired by the opportunity to lead a program with such a strong inter-generational legacy of athletic and academic excellence,” said Goldstein. “I have been a proud member of the Stanford tennis family since I first arrived on campus in 1994 and am thrilled to be returning to the Farm. I look forward to working with our student-athletes and the broader Stanford community to drive success both on and off the court.”
“Paul has enjoyed success at every level of his career and his noticeable passion for our men’s tennis program makes him a great fit to be our next head coach,” said Muir. “Paul’s infectious enthusiasm and ability to cultivate and sustain positive relationships stood out as dynamic qualities during the search process, which attracted both national and international candidates. Throughout the search, Paul’s name continued to rise above an extremely deep, talented and distinguished pool.”
