Dave Fish

Harvard University Former Head Tennis Coach

Dave Fish brought Harvard to the forefront of men's tennis and into the national limelight since being named head coach in 1976.

Fish is the winningest men's tennis coach in Harvard history, surpassing mentor and Crimson legend Jack Barnaby's previous record of 371 wins. His squads are a dominant 257-38 (.871) in Eastern Intercollegiate Tennis Association/Ivy League play and have won five of the last 12 EITA/Ivy titles, as well as 19 of the last 31 conference crowns.

Fish guided Harvard into the NCAA Championships 20 times, including 10 consecutive seasons from 1990 to 1999. He coached Harvard to its first-ever NCAA Tournament victory with a 5-4 win over Drake in 1992 and coached the Crimson to 13 total NCAA tourney wins.

Just the third coach in the history of Harvard men's tennis, Fish was named the 1993, 1998, 2008 and 2012 ITA Regional Coach of the Year.
