We have with us tonight Men’s Head Tennis Coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, Nick Crowell. In four seasons at the helm for the Sooners, Coach Crowell has compiled a record of 65-32 and has led OU to three NCAA tournament berths while coaching three players to All-American honors. He coached the 2017 NCAA Doubles champs in Spencer Papa and Andrew Harris who beat teams ranked 6,3,4, and 1 to take home the title. Coach Crowell has coached players that have gone on to win 119 professional titles. Prior to his arrival in Norman, Crowell spent 13 years as an assistant coach and associate head coach at Florida State University where he helped lead the Seminoles to the NCAA tournament in each of those seasons. Coach Crowell also has experience in the junior ranks. In 2010 he coached the Florida USTA Under-18 Team to a national championship. The win marked the first time since 1983 that the Florida team had won the prestigious tournament. For his efforts he was named the USTA Florida Junior Coach of the Year.
A native of Amarillo, Texas, Crowell spent his playing days at the University of Texas. He was a two-time All-American in doubles and won the ITA National Indoor Championship in doubles with partner Michael Blue during his senior season.
We are happy to have him on the pod tonight. Please enjoy listening to this fun conversation.
