The wave of new head coaches will continue for UCF sports, as Athletics announced Wednesday that head men’s tennis coach Bobby Cashman will be vacating his position.

This past season, the Knights finished with a 9-13 record and did not make it past the first round of the American Athletic Conference Championship.

“I would like to thank Steve Sloan, the former Athletic Director who gave me a chance to be a head coach at UCF several years ago, along with Dr. Hitt,” Cashman said in a press release. “I appreciate the opportunity to have worked with such a great support staff and tremendous student-athletes. I wish nothing but the best for Danny White and his staff to identify the next head men’s tennis coach here at UCF."

Director of Athletics Danny White will begin the nationwide search for yet another head coach immediately. He has recently filled head coaching vacancies in women's basketball, men's basketball and football.

“Coach Cashman has been dedicated to the development of his student-athletes,” White said in the release. “We appreciate the hard work Bobby has put in at UCF. Moving forward, from a competitive standpoint, we expect to contend for and win American Athletic Conference championships.”

Cashman had posted a 212-164 record in 17 seasons at UCF. Three times his teams were able to earn conference titles and berths in the postseason.
