Boca Raton, FL - Former NCAA Division I player and accomplished coach, Dan Mork has been named an assistant coach for the Florida Atlantic University men's tennis program.
Mork was a four-year player at the University of Hartford (1996-2000), helping lead the team to three American East Conference semifinal appearances. He earned all-conference honors in 1997 and served as team captain during his junior and senior seasons. He graduated from Hartford in 2000 and has served as the Director of Tennis at The Wayland Swim and Tennis Club in Wayland, Massachusetts and Assistant Head Pro at the Boston Sports Club in Lexington, Massachusetts.
Before joining the Owls, Mork was coaching at the Fort Lauderdale Tennis Club. "Dan's commitment and passion for our sport, our team and FAU is infectious," said Brandon Stokes, FAU's head men's tennis coach. "His knowledge of tennis will positively transform our players' knowledge of the game and elevate their development as competitors."
Mork started his own video consulting business in 2009 to help tennis players make corrections to their playing abilities. He is consulting with the Sunrise Tennis Academy and works with numerous high-level juniors and collegiate players.
Besides coaching and consulting, Mork still plays competitive tennis, participating in national and local United States Tennis Association tournaments.
"Dan's addition to our program demonstrates our administration's commitment to consistently improving the experience of our student-athletes," said Stokes.
