CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. -- Wabash College has named Daniel Bickett as head coach of the school's varsity tennis program. He begins his duties July 15.
"Daniel is a great addition to Wabash College and our athletics program," Wabash Director of Athletics and Campus Wellness Matt Tanney said. "His previous experience as a head coach, exceptional knowledge of the sport, and strong familiarity with tennis in the Midwest will enable him to immediately impact our tennis scholar-athletes and the program as a whole."
Bickett, a ten-year coaching veteran, earned Division III National Assistant Coach of the Year honors from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association in 2010 and again in 2013 as an assistant at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He worked with both the men's and women's programs at Wisconsin-Whitewater. The Warhawks women's team claimed six consecutive Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles and posted 46 consecutive victories in conference matches while also earning six NCAA Team Tournament appearances.
Bickett spent the 2018 season as the assistant women's tennis coach at the University of Houston in 2018, helping the Cougars finish 20-4. He served as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin for the Badgers men's team that earned its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2010 before taking the position at Houston. Bickett was the head tennis coach at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay for the 2015-16 season, leading the men's team to a second-place finish in the Horizon League. He coached at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for the 2014-15 season.
Bickett graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a bachelor's degree in finance in 2010. He earned a master's degree from Whitewater in 2012.
"I am grateful to Mr. Tanney and the entire Wabash College community for this opportunity," Bickett said. "Wabash College attracts a high-level student-athlete who can excel both academically and athletically. I think there are great things ahead for Wabash tennis. I can't wait to hit the ground and get running."
