Kosicki Named Wesleyan Head Tennis Coach

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Macon, GA - Wesleyan College Director of Athletics Patty Gibbs announced Alex Kosicki as the next Head Coach for the Wolves tennis program on Wednesday afternoon. Kosicki follows Dale Brown, who resigned in May in order to pursue his graduate degree.

"Alex is dedicated to women's athletics and is passionate about tennis," remarked Gibbs. "He has over eight years of tennis coaching experience as well as three years of experience as a basketball coach. Alex is well rounded and has a solid philosophy about coaching women to perform at their highest potential, both in the classroom and on the court."

Kosicki joins the staff at Wesleyan College after spending the past eight and a half years as the Associate Head Coach for both the men's and women's tennis programs at Western New England University in Springfield, MA. In his role, he assisted in all aspects of the program, ranging from on-court instruction and conditioning to recruitment and NCAA complicance.

In addition to coaching tennis, Kosicki also spent the past three seasons coaching basketball at Holyoke Community College in Holyoke, MA. Hired initially to serve as an assistant to Nicki DiMarzio, he took over as head coach for the past two seasons after she became the head coach of Wesleyan's basketball program.

"I hired Alex at Holyoke because of his positive attitude, motivational skills, and work ethic," states DiMarzio. "He was always willing to go above and beyond, and I think he will carry all of those attributes into his role here at Wesleyan. I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to work with Alex again, and I think he will be a great fit with our program."

A 2008 graduate of Springfield College, Kosicki was a four year member of the Pride's varsity tennis program before receiving his B.A. in General Studies with a minor in Business Management and a concentration in Recreation Management. 

"It is a great honor to join the coaching staff at Wesleyan College as the new head women's tennis coach," remarked Kosicki. "The college's history and dedication to women's education is truly inspiring. I look forward to meeting the team and becoming a part of the Wesleyan community."
