NYIT Department of Athletics announced the hiring of Chris Frusci as the new head men’s and women’s tennis coach.

Frusci previously served as assistant coach to both programs and took over the reigns as interim head coach this fall. He has directed the Bears women’s tennis program, which is in its second season, to an astonishing turnaround. NYIT went from 1-10 last season to a current record of 8-3 and a No. 2 seed in the 2011 East Coast Conference tournament.

 “I am extremely grateful to have been named the new head men’s and women’s tennis coach at NYIT,” said Frusci. “In only the second season, I am very humbled by our current success and look to continue to build upon it.”

 “After a very tough inaugural year in 2010-11, the women’s tennis program has rebounded to finish second in the East Coast Conference,” said Director of Athletics Clyde Doughty Jr. “Of course the credit goes to the student-athletes; however, under the leadership of Chris Frusci they have come together as a program in all facets of the academic/athletic paradigm. I am very proud of Chris as a coach but more as a person. As he now takes over full control of the men’s and women’s tennis program, I look forward to continued success from both programs.” 

A Lynbrook, N.Y., native, Frusci received his B.S. in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Muhlenberg in 2008. He was the No. 1 recruited player from the Mules football team’s class of 2008. Unfortunately, Frusci was dealt a career-ending shoulder injury and only played one season for the Mules.

 Frusci was a three-sport athlete at Lynbrook, where he lettered in football, basketball and baseball. As a senior, he received all-county football honors, all-conference basketball accolades and was named all-division for baseball. Frusci was also voted MVP of the Senior Bowl for football. Throughout his academic career, Frusci earned honor roll and dean’s list accolades.
