Chuck Merzbacher, a former all-Big Ten Gophers tennis player, has been named the new Gophers women's tennis team's head coach.
Merzbacher has been Ohio State's head women's tennis coach since 1996, and he replaces Tyler Thomson. Thomson, after coaching the Gophers for 11 seasons, moved to the same post at William & Mary.

Before coaching at OSU, the Findlay, Ohio, native was an assistant for the Gophers for one year, then was head women's tennis coach at Northern Illinois and Kansas.Etc.
