Sean McCaffrey, head men's and women's tennis coach at Wright State since 2008, has accepted the head coach position at Armstrong State, a perennial NCAA Division II power. The move will also put him closer to his extended family.
McCaffrey led the WSU men’s team to 78-69 record in his six seasons while the women posted a record of 52-92. In 2012, he was named the Horizon League and Wright State Coach of the Year as the men went 18-5 overall and a perfect 7-0 in the Horizon League. He was also named the WSU Co-Coach of the Year in 2011 along with former baseball coach Rob Cooper.
McCaffrey led the Midwest Mustangs U16 Boys and Girls teams to the USTA Junior Zone Team Championship in St. Louis in late July 2012.
"The last six years working at Wright State University have been such a privilege and honor,” McCaffrey said. “Words cannot be expressed for how much I will miss the Raider Tennis and Athletic Families. Wright State welcomed me with open arms in 2008 and allowed me the liberty to help grow the tennis teams to be strong and vibrant programs both within the Horizon League but also among all other NCAA teams in the nation.”
“I want to thank Bob Grant and Rod Perry for believing in me and for allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful and supportive staff," added McCaffrey. "I especially want to thank all of my players, assistant coaches, and all of those who helped support the Raider Tennis program. This was not an easy decision by any stretch and my relationships with all of them made it that much more difficult."
McCaffrey and his wife Deborah have two daughters, Cora and Maddie.
