Schyllander Fills Out Tennis Staff

EUGENE, Ore. -- Former Arizona State assistant Paul Reber had been named associate director of tennis and Bart Scott will fill the position of assistant men's tennis coach, Oregon's Director of Tennis Nils Schyllander announced Thursday.

Reber joins the staff after a ten-year assistant coaching stint at Arizona State University, where he oversaw six NCAA top ten teams and was also named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's West Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2005. During his tenure at ASU, Reber coached eight All-Americans and led eight teams to the Sweet 16, including six top ten finishes.

"I am extremely happy that Paul has accepted the position of associate director of tennis at the University of Oregon," Schyllander said. "He has clearly been one of the top coaches in the country for the past ten years and his passion and knowledge of what it takes to be successful at the Pac-10 level will keep moving the program in the right direction."

Scott was most recently the touring professional at the Colorado Springs Racquet club, where he administered private and semi-private lessons and clinics while also on tour competing in singles and doubles professional events. This will be Scott's first full-time collegiate coaching position, although he spent 2004 as a graduate assistant on the men's team at the University of New Mexico after completing his playing career with the Lobos. As a player, he led New Mexico to two Mountain West conference titles in 2000 and 2003 as he rose to third all-time on the career singles win list at UNM with 90 wins.

"Bart brings lots of enthusiasm and energy as well as a very high level of playing ability to the program." Schyllander said. "He knows what it takes to be a successful student athlete and he will have an immediate impact on our program."

Reber will join the program on Sept. 1, while Scott will begin his tenure on Sept. 15.
