Mississippi State didn't have to look very far when it came down to hiring its next men's tennis coach.
All the Bulldogs had to do was check the same side of the net.
Matt Roberts, an assistant to former head coach Per Nilsson the last two years, has been promoted to the top job as announced by MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin on Saturday. The move is pending approval by the Board of Trustees, Institutions of Higher Learning.
"We are very excited to announce Matt Roberts as our next head men's tennis coach," Stricklin said in a school release. "He has been an integral part of the success we have had recently and having him lead our program will give us the opportunity to continue the great culture and approach he and Per have worked hard to establish."
