Saint Mary’s Holds Retirement Celebration For Coach Wayman

The Saint Mary’s athletics department held a celebration for former men’s tennis head coach Michael Wayman’s retirement yesterday. Wayman completed his 20th and final year of coaching at SMC during the 2014-15 season.

A room full of Saint Mary’s staff, faculty, friends, family and former student-athletes gathered and shared their favorite stories with each other and the three-time West Coast Conference Coach of the Year. Over the years, Wayman’s student-athletes earned numerous All-WCC honors on the courts and WCC All-Academic honors in the classroom.

He also served as the facility supervisor of the Timothy Korth Tennis Courts on campus as SMC hosted several West Coast Conference Championships. Wayman also oversaw the improvments and updating of the facility.

Wayman graduated from USC in 1975 where he was a standout tennis player, including a two-time First-Team All-American. His professional experience took him through the ATP Grand Prix Circuit (1975-1983), competing in a variety of major tournaments, including Wimbledon, the United States Open, the United States Indoors, WCT, and World Team Tennis.

Born in Dulwich, England, Wayman and his wife Nancy reside in Martinez, CA.
