Sept. 10, 1999
WESTWOOD, Calif. - Jason Sher was selected as assistant coach of the Bruin men's tennis program, the UCLA Athletic Department announced Wednesday. A four year letterwinner on the UCLA men's tennis team from 1990-93, Sher is not new to the Bruin family. In his senior year, he posted an impressive 31-4 singles record and helped lead the Bruins to a third place NCAA finish.
Prior to UCLA, Sher attended Boston House College in his hometown of Cape Town, South Africa, where he was one of South Africa's top junior players. For the past two years, Sher has served as a coach at the Everett Seguso Tennis Academy in Boca Raton, Florida, where he worked with some of the top juniors to come out of the Academy. He received a History degree at UCLA in 1993 and then went on to pursue a law degree in South Africa.
"I am very excited to have him on board," Head Coach Billy Martin said. "He was always one of the hardest workers on the team. He did a super job here as a player and I am confident that the players will love him. He is a great motivator."
Sher replaces 11-year assistant coach Brett Greenwood, who left to pursue an Internet business career.
