Matt Brooklyn was announced as the new men's tennis assistant coach
Oct. 25, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD men's tennis team has announced the addition of Matt Brooklyn as an assistant coach for the 2013-14 season. Brooklyn comes to USD after serving as an assistant coach at Georgetown for both men's and women's teams from 2011-2013.
"I am incredibly excited to have been given this opportunity to be a part of USD tennis," said Brooklyn. "Coach Masi has brought the program to a new level over the past few years and I look forward to contributing to the continued success of USD Men's tennis."
While on Georgetown's coaching staff, Brooklyn helped lead the men's team to 14-8 and 12-11 records - the first time in 10 years the squad posted a winning record. He also assisted in coaching the first two All-Big East conference players. Brooklyn also helped lead the Lady Hoyas to 15-8 and 16-6 records, along with their first-ever national ranking.
"We're very excited to have Matt here as a Torero. Finally! It's been a long couple months of getting him all cleared to work but I knew all along it was well worth it," said Head Coach Brett Masi. "He is a great asset to this program given his experience at UCLA and ASU playing No. 1 singles and already coaching for a couple years at Georgetown. It will also be huge for us in recruiting some international players from England and that part of Europe given his connections. This is my 3rd assistant in 5 years here at USD and I've been very fortunate to find another great one in Matt."
Brooklyn was a standout player at UCLA after transferring there for the 2008-09 season. During Brooklyn's senior year at UCLA, he had a record of 17-6 in dual matches with an 11-8 showing against ranked opponents. The Bruins finished with a quarterfinal appearance at the NCAAs. Brooklyn's junior year, he was a second-team All-Pac-10 selection and ended the season ranked No. 64 nationally in singles posting a 22-13 overall singles record and going 10-7 in dual matches. He played No. 1 singles when the Bruins advanced to the Final Four. At UCLA, Brooklyn ranked as high as No. 29 among singles players nationally. As a senior, he participated in the NCAA singles individual championship.
Prior to UCLA, Brooklyn played at Arizona State, where he was the 2007 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and a first-team All-Pac-10 selection as a sophomore before ASU dropped their men's program.
Brooklyn is a 2006 graduate of Uxbridge College in Uxbridge, Middlesex (UK) and was born in London. He received his Master's degree in Sports Industry Management while at Georgetown.
