Kent Kinnear, who has been Brad Dancer's assistant at the University of Illinois for the past two seasons, will be leaving his position there to take a coaching job with the USTA's High Performance division. He is expected to take on the 1994 birth year boys, who are currently among several birth years being coached by Jay Berger, a teammate of Kinnear's at Clemson in the mid-80s. Berger will continue as a USTA coach; Kinnear is filling a vacancy created when Francisco Montana left his position a few months ago.
The University of Indiana filled its men's head coaching position by promoting assistant Randy Bloemendaal. The details are here. Other prominent programs with vacancies include Mississippi State, with the resignation of Sylvain Guichard as men's coach and Cal-Berkeley, where women's coach Jan Brogan is retiring after an impressive 29-year career at the school.
The search for a replacement for Timon Corwin at Kalamazoo College is continuing. The job posting can be viewed here.
