UGA's Diaz Named USOC Coach of the Year

From UGA Athletics...

University of Georgia coach Manuel Diaz has been named the 2008 USOC National Coach of the Year for Tennis, the United States Tennis Association announced Thursday.

Each year, Olympic and Pan American sport organizations select their nominations for the National, Developmental, Volunteer and/or Paralympic Coaches of the Year as part of the USOC Coach of the Year Recognition Program. The program seeks to elevate the status of coaching as a profession and recognize the best coaches in the United States. Coaches were judged based on coaching performance, the ethics and character of the coach, the attitude of athletes, service to the sport, and volunteer work within the sport.

"It will be very humbling to receive this award, and I share it with every player and coach that I have ever worked with along with my two mentors, the legendary Georgia coach Dan Magill and Welby Van Horn, who was my junior coach growing up," said Diaz.
