Scott Denenberg enters his third season as an assistant coach with the Illinois men's tennis team. Prior to Illinois, he spent four years playing collegiate tennis at Harvard University.
"Scott really started to feel more comfortable in his coaching skin over the course of this past season," head coach Brad Dancer said. "Scott provides a whole different dimension given his intellectual capacities, youthful exuberance, and strong playing level. He is going to continue to expand his coaching prowess as he gets more time in competition."
Denenberg was named second-team All-Ivy League in doubles his junior year and was ranked in the top 50 nationally in doubles his junior and senior years. The Trumbull, Conn., native received All-Ivy League academic honors his junior year and was named an ITA Scholar-Athlete in 2006 and 2007.
After graduating cum laude from Harvard with an S.B. Honors degree in electrical engineering and computer science, Denenberg worked as an electrical engineer for Jentek Sensors, Inc. where he performed system and electronic design for the small high-tech firm.
Denenberg currently is pursuing his master's degree in electrical and computer engineering.
