Stanford men's tennis coach John Whitlinger announced his retirement Thursday after 10 seasons.
Since taking over the program in 2005 from legendary coach Dick Gould, Whitlinger guided Stanford to a 160-85 (.653) record and nine NCAA tournament appearances.
"Being able to coach at a place you've played is really a dream come true," Whitlinger said. "It's been a great ride and I want to thank everyone that's been a part of it. ... While it is difficult to step away, I'm looking forward to new beginnings."
A two-time All-American, Whitlinger helped Stanford to its first two NCAA titles in 1973 and 1974. He also was an associate head coach from 1987-2004.
