F.D. Robbins, coach of the University of Utah's tennis program since 1987, will be stepping aside to spend more time with his family, the school announced on Friday. In his place, Roeland Brateanu will take the reins after serving as Robbins' assistant since 2008.

Robbins leaves the program with a 364-345 career record, having led the Utes to five NCAA Tournament berths between 1987 and 1997. Utah won four conference titles, including the 2008 Mountain West title.

Robbins earned All-American honors in 1969 and 1970 as a player for Utah.
