WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest head men's tennis coach Tony Bresky welcomed Drew LIed as the program's new Volunteer Assistant Coach on Friday (Sept. 1).

Lied joins the Demon Deacons after serving as an assistant coach for the University of Iowa's women's tennis program last season. In his one season with the Hawkeyes, he helped lead the team to a 9-0 start, the best in program history, a 16-9 overall record and a national ranking as high as No. 47.

"Drew will be an outstanding addition to our coaching staff," said Bresky. "He was an excellent player at Michigan State, having played No. 1 singles. In addition, he has several years of college coaching experience and is looking to pursue a career as a college tennis coach. We are lucky to have him join us and look forward to working with him."

Prior to his time at Iowa, Lied briefly served as the assistant men's tennis coach at Washington and Lee University while also serving as the assistant director of the Duchossois Tennis Center.

Lied previously was a tennis professional at the JMG Tennis Academy in Sacramento, California. He served as a volunteer assistant coach at Marquette University in 2015, helping the Golden Eagles earn a runner-up finish at the Big East Tournament.

"I am very grateful for the opportunity that Tony (Bresky) and Chris (Eaton) have given me," said Lied. "It's an honor to be a part of such a great program and I am excited to get to work to help this team achieve its goals."

Lied graduated from Michigan State with a bachelor of science in applied engineering and a concentration in supply chain management in 2015. He was a four-year letterwinner and two-year captain for the Spartans, finishing his career with 73 singles wins and 86 doubles victories. He earned first-team All-Big Ten honors as a senior, and as a junior earned second-team All-Big Ten and Academic All-Big Ten honors while helping the Spartans reach the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history.
