Todd Chapman just completed his fourth season as the Lady Raiders assistant women's tennis coach, earning 2013 ITA Texas Region Assistant Coach of the year honors.
Chapman has been a part of the amazing turnaround with the Texas Tech women's tennis program. Since his arrival in the summer of 2009, the Lady Raiders have gone 68-33. It has been the most successful run for Texas Tech over a four-year period in program history culminating in a pair of Big 12 regular season titles and two trips to the NCAA Championships.
He helped lead the Lady Raiders to the 2012 Big 12 Championship, the first conference title in program history. The Lady Raiders also earned their first berth in the NCAA Championships in 2012, while being ranked as high as No. 17 nationally.
Texas Tech followed that up by winning a share of its second straight Big 12 title and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Championships after being selected as of the 16 seeds for the 2013 NCAA Championships. The Lady Raiders were ranked as high as No. 15 and finished the season ranked No. 18, the highest year-end ranking program history.
During his tenure, Texas Tech has produced nine All-Big honorees and 16 academic All-Big 12 selections.
Chapman has also helped secure the two highest-ranked recruiting classes in program history - No. 19 in 2010 and No. 16 in 2013.
