Craig Schwartz will be the new head coach the St. John’s men’s tennis team, the school announced on Thursday.

“I’d like to thank Kathy Meehan and the entire search committee for affording me this great opportunity to become the head coach for men’s tennis, and to become a part of the Red Storm family,” Schwartz said in the St. John’s press release.

Schwartz joins the Red Storm after serving as an assistant coach for the Appalachian State men’s and women’s tennis programs. Prior to that, he served as the head coach and coordinator of the Queens College men’s tennis program for five seasons.

“I am excited to hit the ground running,” added Schwartz. “My goal will be to help our student-athletes continue their successes both on and off the court. I’m looking forward to creating a culture based off of hard work, discipline, and respect at St. John’s. There is nothing better than going out there and watching your players work hard and compete on a daily basis for each other with the same goals in mind.”
