Andrew SilvermanAndrew Silverman Returns as New Interim Head Coach for Men and Women's Tennis

Chestnut Hill College is happy to welcome Andrew Silverman home after more than three years away. He will be the new interim men and women's tennis head coach for the upcoming season. Silverman spent the first six years of his coaching career (2008-14) at CHC, as an assistant to then-head coach, Albert Stroble. During his tenure, Silverman was named a three-time Intercollegiate Tennis Association Division II East Region Assistant Coach of the Year, once with the men's tennis program (2013-2014) and twice with the women (2011-2012, 2013-2014).  Following the 2014 season, Silverman took on his first head coaching job, at Holy Family University, but is now back to help ensure another successful year for CHC tennis.

"I am excited Andrew will be overseeing our programs," says Lynn Tubman, director of athletics and recreation. "He has the experience and passion to lead our men's and women's tennis teams on an interim basis and he is committed to providing our student-athletes with a positive experience during this transition. Andrew will be valuable in leading the programs and assisting in the search for our next head coach."
