Niall Angus was hired in September of 2016 as the Santa Clara University men's tennis head coach.

In his three seasons as a head coach on the Mission Campus, Angus has led the Broncos to a winning record each year compiling a 45-27 overall record.  Angus' squad has been especially stout on the Degheri Tennis Center home courts posting a 20-6 record.  

The Broncos were on the footsteps of reaching the 2019 NCAA Tournament falling just short, losing in the finals of the West Coast Conference Tournament to San Diego.  

During his tenure as the head coach, Angus has coached eight All-WCC singles players, including two first-teamers, and seven All-WCC doubles players.  His players have also shined in the classroom with eight WCC All-Academic selections and three ITA Scholar-Athletes.  

In 2017, Connor Garnett received the 2017 West Coast Conference Male Sportsmanship Award based on the student-athlete's dedication to being a great representation of his conference, institution, team, and himself.

Angus spent the 2015-16 season as an assistant coach for the Broncos after two years of coaching at both the collegiate and junior tennis level. The London native was also a standout player at Texas A&M.

In 2015-16, Angus helped a number of Broncos achieve success. Robert Seby won the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year award and was named to the singles honorable mention team. Ashot Khacharyan was named to the All-WCC Second Team Singles list. Seby and Connor Garnett received an honorable mention nod in doubles.
 
Angus has competed and coached at the highest echelon of tennis.
 
Angus spent the 2014-15 season in Houston, where he instructed the up-and-coming stars in the game. He taught junior level players and assisted many of them in achieving collegiate scholarships at programs across the country.
 
During the 2013-14 season, Angus was a Texas A&M volunteer assistant coach. He helped steer the Aggies to a 25-7 record, a season-high ranking of No. 8 in the nation and a tournament championship in the highly competitive Southeastern Conference. He also aided in the development of the doubles pairing of Junior Ore and Jackson Withrow, a duo that went on to be ranked No. 1 in the nation that season.
 
Angus was a four-year star for the Aggies from 2010-13. He helped the school achieve its highest ever ranking during the 2011 season when the team climbed its way to the No. 6 spot in the nation. He also helped lead the Aggies to three NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearances in his four seasons at College Station.
 
As a youngster competing in England, Angus reached a junior high national ranking of No. 4, solidified a ranking of No. 51 in the Junior ITF World Rankings and captured a number of ATP men’s singles and doubles points as a rising player. He also played in three out of four junior grand slams and competed at Wimbledon twice during his early playing days.
