Middlebury College men's tennis coach Dave Schwarz has accepted a position as the new men's tennis head coach at Brown University. He ends his tenure at Middlebury with a 174-37 record over 10 seasons, leading the program to national prominence. A search has begun to fill the vacant position.

Schwarz led the team to four consecutive NESCAC titles ('04-'07), with two more titles coming in '09 and '10. The team also made eight straight trips to the NCAA final four. The '04 squad captured the school's first NCAA Tennis Championship, while the '06 and '07 squads set school records with 22 wins at the time. The '10 NCAA Championship team set a school record with a 23-2 mark.

Following the team's national crown in '04, Schwarz was named the ITA Division III National Coach of the Year. He was also a four-time selection ('02, '04, '07, '10) as the NESCAC Coach of the Year. Schwarz was named the ITA Regional Coach of the Year in '09 and '10.

Schwarz came to Middlebury from Cornell, where he was the assistant men's tennis coach and Director of the Reis Tennis Center on campus. Following his final season at Cornell, Schwarz was named the Division I Northeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year. Prior to that, he served as an assistant coach for both the men's and women's tennis programs at Cornell for two seasons.
