NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma men's tennis assistant Bo Hodge was recently promoted to associate head coach, OU head coach John Roddick announced.

Hodge served as the assistant coach for the Sooners' back-to-back Big 12 Championship seasons in 2012 and 2013. OU added its second-ever appearance in the NCAA Sweet 16 last season as the Sooners made unparalleled performance strides in its recent history.

"Bo has been a valuable component of the achievements of OU men's tennis," Roddick said. "His passion and commitment to recruiting and coaching have translated into immediate on-the-court results. With Bo's help, we've quickly built our foundation for success.

"We're very appreciative of Coach Hodge's work and excited to have an opportunity to reward him."

Under Hodge's tutelage, Costin Paval was the Big 12's Player of the Year in his junior and senior seasons while the Sooners also claimed the conference's 2012 Newcomer of the Year, Guillermo Alcorta, and 2013 Freshman of the Year, Axel Alvarez.
Prior to coming to OU, Hodge was a four-time All-American at the University of Georgia from 2001-2004. After leaving Georgia and playing in the pro-circuit, he landed an assistant job at the University of Alabama where he stayed for three years.

This past season marked the third consecutive year where Hodge has been selected to be coach for the USTA Men’s Collegiate Team.
