David Anderton
David  Anderton

Assistant Coach (2nd Year)

David Anderton just completed his second year as USD 's interim head coach. Last year he was named interim men's tennis head coach at USD for the 2007-08 season while former head coach Tom Hagedorn was battling leukemia. Hagedorn recently lost his courageous battle on March 21, 2009. Heading into the 2009-10 campaign, he will be Brett Masi's top assistant.

This past season Anderton directed the Toreros to a 2nd place finish at the West Coast Conference Championships, and the season culminated with sophomore Dean Jackson earning a bid into the 2009 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships. Jackson advanced to the round of sixteen and was awarded ITA All-America honors.

For the 2007-08 season, Anderton guided the Toreros to a 12-11 record and final national ranking of 57th. Anderton coached two players that advanced to the NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Individual Championships - senior Thomas Liversage and freshman Dean Jackson. Liversage finished with a national ranking of 53rd, while Jackson finished at 63rd in the final ITA national rankings. Jackson was tabbed the WCC Freshman of the Year and joined Liversage on the All-WCC First Team for singles. Liversage teamed with Chris Coetzee in doubles and were tabbed All-WCC 1st team doubles.

Anderton came to USD from the University of Miami where he was assistant coach for the Hurricane women's program for four years. In 2007 he was named the NCAA Division I ITA Women's Assistant Coach of the Year after the team finished 22-7 overall and reached the NCAA quarterfinals. Additionally, he was tabbed the 2007 ITA Southeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year. He helped coach Audra Cohen to the 2007 NCAA singles title.

During his four years with the Hurricanes, Anderton collaborated with head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews in the essential development of the Miami women's tennis program to become one of the forefront teams in collegiate tennis. Miami reached the NCAA Team Championships with the assistance of Anderton in each of his four years with the program. In 2006 the team reached the finals, and after their impressive showing at the NCAA Tournament, finished with an overall record of 24-7. Miami finished fourth in the final Fila Collegiate Tennis Rankings. Miami was consistently ranked among the top ten teams in the country over Anderton's four seasons. During Miami's impressive run to the NCAA finals of 2006, Anderton helped the Miami women's tennis team defeat both No. 2 Notre Dame and No.3 Southern California in the quarterfinals and semifinals of the NCAA Tournament. The Hurricanes reached the finals of NCAA tournament for the first time since the 1986 season.

Prior to joining the Miami staff, Anderton spent two seasons (1999-2001) as the women's assistant coach at the University at Alabama. He helped guide Alabama from an unranked program to a final national ranking of 26th in 2001. He helped coach Emmanuelle Berard to a top-30 national ranking and berth in the NCAA Tournament as a freshman. Anderton also worked as an assistant coach for the men's and women's tennis programs at Western Michigan University from 1998-99. He helped guide both programs to conference titles and NCAA appearances for first time in program history.

Anderton played tennis for four years at Bowling Green where he was co-captain and named to the Dean's list from 1997-98. He earned a degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Bowling Green in 1998. Upon graduation he was the all-time leader in singles and doubles wins in Bowling Green history. Anderton was born and raised in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.
