WILLIAMSBURG - William and Mary head men's tennis coach Peter Daub announced the addition of former Tribe player Jacob Braig to the Green and Gold staff as an assistant coach. A two-time team captain, Braig spent the last four years in the Tribe program as a player and graduated from the College with a degree in marketing and government in May.

"The program and myself are very fortunate to have a former player, who understands Tribe tennis and the College of William and Mary as well as the standards and values that we aim toward," Daub said. "Jacob will be an excellent recruiter that can pull on his past experiences at the College. He embodies the qualities and traits as a people person that will elevate our program in the eyes of the people who follow us and those that look to be associated with us."

During his time at W&M, Braig received the President's Award for athletic leadership, service and dedication in 2011. On two occasions (2009 and 2012), he was honored as the Tribe's Pride and Tradition Award for work ethic and commitment to the Green and Gold program. As a senior, Braig received CAA Doubles Team of the Week honors on Feb. 15, 2012 and competed in the 2011 ITA Atlantic Region Championships. He was selected by the coaching staff as a W&M representative to the Student Athletes Across the Conference organization from 2010-12.

"To be apart of the Tribe program once again means a great deal to me," Braig said. "I am both motivated and excited to work with this great group of guys that I know holds huge potential. I am looking forward to working with Coach Daub and the Tribe family in moving this program to a championship level."

Prior to joining the Tribe program, Braig spent one season at Christopher Newport. He was named an ITA Scholar-Athlete honoree and helped CNU to a No. 24 nationally ranking in NCAA Division III and its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Braig also was a representative for Christopher Newport at the Student Athletes Across the Conference organization in 2007-08. A captain at Jamestown High School in Williamsburg for three seasons, Braig was one of the top players in the state of Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region.

Along with his playing career, Braig spent three years as a lead instructor for the Peak, Performance, and Developmental Tennis Camp as well as an instructor and camp counselor for the Nike Tennis Camp in Williamsburg. He served as an instructor and night manager at Black Creek Park in Yorktown, Va. During his time at Black Creek, he managed facility accounts, organized match schedules and was responsible for upkeep of facility.
