Ricardo Rojas

Ricardo ‘Ricky’ Rojas enters his seventh season as the assistant coach for the ETSU tennis program.

A native of Caracas, Venezuela, Rojas joined the ETSU coaching staff in 2008 and has since helped lead the Buccaneer tennis program to conference tournament titles in each of his seven seasons. He also aided the Bucs to their first NCAA Tournament win in 2008 beating then-BIG EAST Champion Notre Dame; however, Rojas’s aid did not end there. In 2010, he helped the Bucs to a 9-1 conference record and their second NCAA Tournament win defeating Alabama 4-2.

During his career for the Bucs, ETSU reached the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships for the fifth time in school history. The Bucs went 23-5 during the year, including going unbeaten in Atlantic Sun conference action (11-0). That season Rojas posted a 9-4 overall singles record, including going 8-3 in tournament play. Also with then teammate Predrag Burmazovic, the duo went 4-1 in doubles action.

Rojas earned his bachelor’s degree and MBA from ETSU and is currently pursuing a Masters in Sport Management degree.

Head Coach Yaser Zaatini’s thoughts on Ricardo Rojas: “Ricardo really brings great experience and knowledge to our program,” said head coach Yaser Zaatini. “Since he played here at ETSU, Ricardo knows what our program is about. His winning attitude and professionalism is something our players will benefit from both on and off the court. I’m happy to have him here and I’m excited that our team will get to take advantage of all that he brings to our program.”
