Gator women's tennis coach calls it quits

Florida women's tennis coach Andy Brandi announced his resignation Tuesday, ending one of the most successful collegiate careers after 17 years.

Brandi finished with a 460-43 record. His winning percentage of 91.5 percent was the highest among coaches with at least five years of experience. He led the Gators to three national titles (1992, '96 and '98) and six undefeated seasons ('87, '91, '92, '96, '97 and '98). With Brandi in charge, the Gators won 14 SEC titles and all 103 of his home SEC dual matches.

"This is a sad day for me," said Brandi, who is leaving to coach at IMG Tennis Academy in Boca Raton. "This has been a wonderful experience and I am surely going to miss it, but this is it for Andy Brandi."

After losing in the team semifinals in the NCAA Tournament last week, Brandi told his team he was leaving. Senior Whitney Laiho and junior Jessica Lehnhoff then won the doubles title. Athletic director Jeremy Foley would not say how long it would take to find a replacement.
