Men's Tennis Coaches
David Schwarz, the head coach of the men’s tennis program at Middlebury for 10 years, was named the head men’s tennis coach at Brown in September 2010, in an announcement made by Brown Director of Athletics, Michael Goldberger.
“I am excited for the challenge of Division I and the Ivy League,” said Schwarz. “I am grateful for my time at Middlebury and had a great situation there, but I am leaving for another great situation. I am looking forward to getting started with the guys and being extremely competitive in the Ivy League.”
The most successful men’s tennis coach in Middlebury’s history, Schwarz concluded his 10th season with an overall record of 174-37 (.825), while leading the Panthers to national prominence. Under Schwarz guidance, Middlebury won four straight NESCAC titles (2004-2007), winning its fifth and sixth titles in the past seven years in 2009 and 2010. His team made eight straight trips to the NCAA final four, with the 2004 squad capturing the school’s first NCAA Tennis Championship. Schwarz’s 2006 and 2007 teams set school records with 22 wins at the time, a mark that was eclipsed this spring when the Panthers earned a 23-2 mark en route to Middlebury’s second NCAA Tennis Championship.
The ITA Division III National Coach of the Year in 2004, Schwarz was named NESCAC Coach of the Year in 2002, 2004, 2007, and 2010, and earned ITA Regional Coach of the Year honors in both 2009 and 2010.
A 1989 graduate of Cornell, where he played four years of varsity tennis, Schwarz began his collegiate coaching career in the fall of 1996 as the Assistant Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach at Cornell. Following one year in that role, Schwarz was the Assistant Men’s Coach (1997-2000), spending the 1998-99 season as an assistant with the women as well. The Northeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2000, Schwarz was also the Managing Director of the Cornell Tennis & Squash Center.
Originally from Providence, Schwarz received a master’s degree from Cortland State in 1994.
Boris Bosnjakovic joined the Brown University men’s tennis program as an assistant coach in September of 2013.
Bosnjakovic, who has served as a coach on the ATP and WTA World Tours since 2000, has coached three players ranked in the top-100 as well as several top-200 ranked ATP players. Most recently, Bosnjakovic was the Head Coach of the 2010 World Champion Serbian Davis Cup Team, featuring world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, former Top-10 Janko TIpsarevic and former World No. 1 doubles player Nenad ZImonjic.
A 1997 graduate of Brigham Young University, Bosnjakovic played No. 1 singles and doubles all four years as a member of the tennis team. He then played on the ATP Tour from 1997-2000 and reached a ranking of 740 in singles before moving on to coaching due to multiple injuries.
Bosnjakovic, a native of Serbia who captured the Yugoslavian U-18 Junior Championship, was named to the Yugoslavian Davis Cup in 1992 before moving to the United States where he was ranked a top-50 Junior ITF in the world.
