Recruiting 101
Meet The Assistant: Florida's Tanner Stump

They fill a crucial role in every college program. They juggle multiple responsibilities and put in long hours behind the scenes. They arrive early to hit balls, they stay late to provide advice and they keep in contact with potential recruits.

They are assistant coaches.

Although they may not get as much attention as head coaches, they are highly valued by many.

In this edition of Meet The Assistant, we profile University of Florida assistant Tanner Stump.

Why did you get into coaching?

When I entered college, I already had the idea of becoming a college coach. The game of tennis has always been infectious for me and I couldn’t imagine not being around it by choosing a different career path. My experience in college only intensified that as I began to see how enjoyable it was to watch a team grow together and accomplish amazing things. I was certainly blessed with two coaches, Per Nilsson and Matt Hill, who supported me in that pursuit and have been invaluable to my success in this arena. Being a part of something bigger than yourself, while helping young men mature and prepare for life, is the exclamation point on why I got into coaching.
