Taylor Bedilion joins the Bronco coaching staff this season, following an exceptional four-year playing career at Santa Clara. He will assist the men's program in recruiting, game-day coaching, fundraising and player development. "Taylor's Bronco tennis experience is invaluable to our program," head coach George Husack said. "He has a keen understanding of the game which the players will benefit from. He led by example as a player and will do the same as a coach." Bedilion finished his career ranked No. 3 all-time in career singles victories (67 wins) and No. 7 in career doubles (56 wins). A team co-captain during his senior season, Bedilion moved to the top singles position after beginning his career at No. 6 during his freshmen campaign. He was an All-West Coast Conference honoree in singles and a two-time recipient of the Broncos' "Mad Dog" award, an honor given annually to the player who comes through in the clutch when the team needs it the most. Academically, Bedilion was a four-time Bronco Scholar-Athlete of the Week, while being named to the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll on three occasions. He was also served as team representative for the Student-Athlete Advisory Council. A four-year letterwinner at Drake High School in San Anselmo, Calif., Bedilion was a three-time team MVP and two-time Marin County Player of the Year. He was ranked No. 4 in the NCTA Boys 18s rankings and No. 51 in the USTA national rankings. Bedilion earned his bachelor's degree in business in 2005 and is in pursuit of a master's degree from Santa Clara's Leavey School of Business. A Bay Area native, Bedilion is single and resides in Mountain View.
