Mountaineer head coach Marc Walters begins his first season at WVU after 12 successful years at the DII level guiding nationally ranked men's and women's programs at Barton College (NC) and the University of Nebraska at Kearney. With 394 career wins entering 2007, Walters has had experience with every level of NCAA competition and player as he returns to his hometown to assume this position. He remains the winningest coach in UNK history with 156, while he is now second on the Barton all-time list behind the legendary Tom Parham.
In addition to taking both of those programs to national DII rankings and trips to the NCAA tournament, he has coached more than 50 players to state High School championships in Nebraska and North Carolina, where no fewer than 8 of his developmental juniors have gone on to play Division I tennis. He has also served on both ITA and NCAA rankings committees, The ITA National Awards Committee, and won the 1997 Community Service ITA/USTA award for growing tennis at the grass roots level in Nebraska.
He is also currently involved in player development through the USTA with the Ridgeview Racquet Club in Morgantown, WV.
Walters is married to wife Jessica for 8 years, and they have two sons (Jameson, age 4, and Jett, age 2). They reside in Morgantown.
