LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming Athletics Director Tom Burman has announced that women's tennis coach Krissy Hall has resigned her position to become the head coach at the University of Alabama Birmingham. Hall recently completed her third season as the head coach of the women's tennis program.
Hall combined for a record of 26-43 overall and 3-21 in the Mountain West Conference in her three years with the program. During the 2007-08 season, the Cowgirls finished with an 11-13 record overall and 1-7 in the MWC. The 11-wins tied for the most in the programs' history, which was set during the 1996-97 season. Wyoming also won only their second MWC Tournament match in school history.
Hall was just the third head women's tennis coach in Cowgirl history. Under Hall, they won their first ever MWC Tournament match with a 4-3 victory over Air Force on April 26, 2006 in San Diego, Calif. and Sarah Summerfield also earned First Team All-MWC honors during her first year with the program and only the second time in school history.
"Krissy has been a great ambassador for UW Athletics and for our university during her three years here," said UW Athletics Director Tom Burman. "She has enjoyed numerous successes during her time at Wyoming. I know everyone in our athletics department wishes her and her family all the best in their future."
Hall came to Wyoming after spending a year at Washington State University.
Burman said they are working under a tight time constraint due to the upcoming fall workouts and schedule so they hope to have someone in place quickly.
