Andy Roland wrapped up his second season as assistant coach of the Wake Forest women's tennis team.
In his first two seasons at Wake Forest, Roland helped a number of Demon Deacons record individual accomplishments. He helped guide Kayla Duncan and Kathryn Talbert to a No. 7 national doubles ranking and a second-round appearance in the 2011 NCAA Doubles Championships and also helped lead Martina Pavelec into the top-25 in the singles rankings in 2011.
His talent evaluation skills paid off in recruiting as Wake Forest's 2012 incoming class was ranked 25th nationally by the Tennis Recruiting Network, while its 2011 class ranked as the sixth-best in the ACC and 30th-best nationally.
Roland joined the Wake Forest women's tennis staff as an assistant coach after serving in the same capacity under current Wake Forest head women's tennis coach Jeff Wyshner at the University of Akron. Roland also spent two months as the interim women's tennis coach at Akron.
Roland joined the Zips coaching staff as an assistant coach while working at Towpath Tennis Center in Akron. While at Akron, Roland worked extensively with Zips player Zara Harutyunyan, helping her become the first-ever freshman to win the Mid-American Conference Player of the Year award. Last season, Akron started the year 15-0 en route to finishing 19-3 and earning a second-place finish in the MAC.
Roland earned numerous honors while playing collegiately at Glendale Community College, being named an All-American and receiving the ITA Player to Watch Award in 1999. He was named the Western State Conference Player of the Year in 1999 and 2001, and was also awarded the Arthur Ashe, Jr. Leadership and Sportsmanship Award in 2001.
After receiving his bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Cal Poly Pomona in 2005, Roland played on the professional circuit, recording a notable singles win over Sam Querrey. His younger sister Jessica Roland-Rosario has competed in the Fed Cup for Puerto Rico.
Roland is engaged to his fiancée Amber Hyatt and resides in Winston-Salem. He is the son of George and Nayda Roland who currently reside in Hollywood, Calif.
