Mark Harlan has made his first coaching change as Utah's athletic director, following the first school year of his tenure. Citing a “comprehensive review of the program,” Harlan dismissed women's tennis coach Mat Iandolo, the school announced Wednesday.
Iandolo held the job for 12 years, enjoying success in the program’s Mountain West era. He arrived at Utah in 2007, after 16 years at Purdue. Iandolo was named the MW Coach of the Year in 2011, when the Utes made their second straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Against high-level competition in the Pac-12, Utah has not risen above sixth place.
The Utes posted a 13-11 record this season, including a 3-7 mark in Pac-12 matches. Seeded No. 7 in the conference tournament, Utah lost 4-2 to No. 10 Arizona.
Brianna Chisholm, a senior from Kaysville, was Utah’s only All-Pac-12 selection, receiving honorable mention. Chisholm also was named the Pac-12 Women’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
