Bruce Myers

Bruce Myers recently completed his third season as Bucknell's head men's tennis coach.

Myers is a veteran coach who has led collegiate tennis programs in both the Division I and III ranks.

In his first season at Bucknell, Myers guided the Bison to 11 wins and their second straight appearance in the semifinal round of the Patriot League Tournament. The Bison entered the championship event as the sixth-seeded team and pulled off a 4-3 upset over third-seeded Lehigh in the quarterfinal round.

Following a challenging schedule in his second season with the team, Myers guided the Bison back to double-digit wins in his third season with a 12-13 overall record. More importantly, the team went 5-3 in Patriot League play to earn the most conference regular season victories in program history, earning the fourth seed in the league tournament.

At the conclusion of each of Myers' first two seasons, junior Daniel Wright earned First Team All-Patriot League recognition and was voted to the Academic All-Patriot League Team. Myers added another First Team All-Patriot League selection to his resume when freshman Ethan Jacobs earned the award in 2019.

Myers spent the 2016 season as the head men's tennis coach at Delaware, where he helped the Blue Hens snap a 34-match losing streak and finish the season with three wins in its final six contests. Myers has also served as head women's coach and adjunct physical education professor at Longwood, head men's and women's coach at North Carolina A&T, and director of tennis and head men's and women's coach at Randolph-Macon.

A 1993 Randolph-Macon graduate, Myers was a three-year captain and two-time All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference selection during his career with the Yellow Jackets. After graduating with a degree in business economics, Myers entered the corporate world, serving as president and CEO of The National Financial News Services from 1993-2007 and owner and managing partner of Shoprate.com from 2006-08.

During his successful tenure in the business sector, Myers continued to play competitive tennis and was a highly ranked player in the Philadelphia area. A certified tennis professional by the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), he was the top-ranked men's 35 pro in the Philadelphia Section in 2011, the second-ranked in the Middle State Section and No. 15 nationally.
