Quentin Monaghan was hired as the Volunteer Assistant coach for men’s tennis in January of 2017.
A former standout at Notre Dame, Monaghan competed for the Fighting Irish from 2012-16. He became the first NCAA Individual singles semifinalist in program history in 2015, and followed that up by reaching the 2016 NCAA doubles semifinals.
“We are excited to have Quentin join us,” said the Columbia Tennis Alumni and Friends Head Coach Bid Goswami. “We had our eyes on him from when he was a junior and we are glad to finally have him coach alongside Howard Endelman and myself. He brings in a lot of collegiate tennis experience as one of the best players at Notre Dame. He was a terrific competitor which we saw first-hand when we competed with ND.”
The two-time All-American reached a career best ranking of No. 5 in singles play and No. 6 on the doubles side, while becoming a three-time academic All-ACC recipient.
Monaghan was awarded the 2016 ITA/Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award, earning both the regional and national awards. The three-time team captain also earned the 2016 Byron Kanaley Award, which is Notre Dame’s most prestigious honor, going to exemplary students and leaders. Additionally, Monaghan earned his degree in Business Management at Notre Dame in 2016.
Most recently, Monaghan has been coaching private lessons from players age 10-16. He also has spent time as a Junior Representative at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in Washington D.C., teaching the game to youth players.
