Men’s tennis coach Matt Knoll resigns, BaylorLariat, After 22 years, Baylor men’s tennis head coach Matt Knoll has resigned from the program.

Knoll said that he has treasured his time at Baylor, but is seeking a new adventure.

“After 22 years leading the Baylor tennis program, I’ve decided to step down to pursue a new challenge,” Knoll said. “Working with world class student-athletes, coaches and administrators has been the joy of my life. Winning Baylor’s first team national championship is something to treasure forever. I look forward to watching the tradition of excellence continue.”

Knoll took over the program back in 1997, when Baylor first joined the Big 12 conference.

Knoll helped Baylor reach great heights during his tenure. In 22 years, he finished with a 510-150 record, including posting a 32-2 record while bringing the program its first National Championship with a 4-0 sweep of UCLA in 2004.
