Saint Leo University’s men’s and women’s tennis coach Pablo Montana has resigned as the Lions’ head coach, citing family reasons.
Montana, who was hired in August, said in a release that he will be returning to the Pittsburgh area with his family. Montana previously served as the head women’s tennis coach at California University of Pennsylvania for 12 seasons.
A national search for a new head men’s and women’s tennis coach will begin immediately. The Saint Leo men’s tennis team finished last season as national runners-up at the 2016 NCAA Division II Men’s Tennis Championship. Meanwhile, the women’s tennis team was a national semifinalist for the second time in three years at the 2016 NCAA Division II Women’s Tennis Championship.
