Aug. 15, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jarod Camerota, the head men's and women's tennis coach at Jacksonville University, has announced his resignation to accept the position of head men's tennis coach at Georgia State.

In his two seasons at JU, Camerota built the women's program into a power - winning the Atlantic Sun Conference regular season and tournament titles in 2007 and program's first NCAA Tournament appearance.

On the men's side, he rebuilt the program that won just one match his first season to winning 14 his second season.

"We appreciate all of Jarod's hard work and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," said JU director of athletics Alan Verlander. "Under his guidance, the men's and women's tennis program have a solid foundation that our new coach can build upon."

In his two seasons as head coach, Camerota compiled a 28-12 record on the women's side while going 15-24 on the men's side. After going 1-17 his first year with the men's team, his second team went 14-7 - the largest turnaround in the country last season.
