The winningest coach in NCAA men’s tennis history, legendary Stanford head coach Dick Gould guided the Cardinal to 17 NCAA championships in his 38 seasons. After playing collegiately for Stanford he took over as head coach of the men’s program from 1967-2004, and continued to work in the athletic department until his official retirement on Jan. 15, 2018 as the John L. Hinds Director of Tennis, wrapping up a Stanford career that spanned 57 years. Over his 38 seasons as head coach, he led Stanford to a 776-148 overall record, produced 50 All-Americans, 10 NCAA singles champions and seven NCAA doubles titlists. Over a four-year stretch from 1995-98, Stanford won four straight NCAA crowns, going 28-0 in 1998 while losing only three dual-match points the entire season. For a 34-year period, every four-year letter winner earned at least one NCAA championship ring. An innovator both on and off-court, Gould spearheaded fundraising efforts, including one of the first personal seat license programs and raised funds to create endowments that went towards building the Taube Family Tennis Stadium, coaching and assistant coaching positions, athletics scholarships, operations and facility maintenance and repair.
