Minnesota women’s tennis assistant coach Daria Panova has accepted the position of Head Coach at the University of Maryland. She becomes the ninth head coach in the 35-year history of the Terrapin program.
A national search to replace Panova is underway.
Panova worked with former Gopher head coach Ty Thompson for the past five seasons, aiding the Maroon and Gold to a 65-57 overall record an 18-32 conference record during her tenure. Last season she helped guide the squad to a 16-9 finish (5-6 Big Ten) and a final No. 39 ranking according to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. Minnesota began with a 12-1 start, the best in program history, and ended with the program’s first NCAA tournament appearance since 2003.
A native of Moscow, Russia, Panova was a two-time All-American and the 2003 Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year for the University of Oregon. She graduated with a degree in marketing before joining the coaching staff at Minnesota where she also earned her master's degree in sport management.
