Conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances have become commonplace since Mait DuBois took over the UNCW program in the summer of 2007.

The Seahawks have captured three Colonial Athletic Association titles (2009, 2011, 2013) and advanced to the NCAA Regionals four times (2009, 2011, 2012, 2013) in the last five years as UNCW has emerged into a national power in mens tennis.

The Charleston, S.C., native enters his seventh year with the Seahawks in 2013-14 after piloting the team to its second consecutive CAA crown and a number of firsts last season. He was named CAA Coach-of-the-Year last spring for his accomplishments.

Overall, the veteran skipper begins his 16th year as a coach on the NCAA Division I level, compiling a 126-60 career record. He has been a part of nine conference championship teams and 10 NCAA Tournament appearances during his successful career.

With DuBois at the helm, the Seahawks have joined the elite of NCAA men's tennis, climbing to as high as No. 37 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings on Feb. 19, 2013. DuBois has won 74.6 percent of his matches (106-36) in six seasons in the Port City.

UNCW went 19-5 in dual matches, did not surrender a match in the CAA Tournament and upset No. 18 South Carolina in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. On top of that, the Seahawks finished with an unbeaten season at home, placed seven players on the All-CAA team and finished the year ranked No. 43 in the final ITA poll.

On the heels of his second CAA crown, DuBois was invited by the USTA to participate in the group's High Performance Coaching Program in the conjunction with the Davis Cup during the summer of 2011. He joined several of the nation's top collegiate coaches and professionals Rafael Nadal and Andy Roddick to analyze current trends in technique, tactics and training.


In the fall of 2008, DuBois was selected by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to take part in a High Performance Coaching Program at the US Open professional Grand Slam event. A select group of High Performance Coaches from across the country met to consult and study with the USTA in the development of top level professional players from top junior players.

Prior to UNCW, DuBois was an assistant at N.C. State. He helped the Wolfpack achieve its second straight post-season berth, a No. 41 national ranking and coached Daria Petrovic and Alejandra Guerra to the NCAA Division I Doubles Championships in Athens, Ga.

DuBois was an assistant men's and women's coach on four Big South championship squads from 1998-2001, and also played a key role as the Buccaneers racked up three NCAA Tournament appearances. DuBois was selected head men's and women's coach at CSU in 2002 and guided the Buccaneer men to the BSC title, an NCAA Tournament berth and its highest national ranking.

Following two years as the head skipper at CSU, DuBois accepted a position as assistant women's coach and recruiting coordinator at Virginia. The Cavaliers landed a Top 30 national ranking, and DuBois was nominated for Assistant Coach-of-the-Year in the region.

DuBois then moved on to fellow Atlantic Coast Conference member N.C. State, where he assisted women's coach Hans Olsen for three seasons. The Wolfpack advanced to the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 2005-06, setting program records for victories and conference wins. With DuBois on the staff, N.C. State qualified for the NCAA Tournament in both 2006 and 2007, featuring a pair of All-ACC performers, and setting records for total victories (2007) and wins over ranked opponents.

DuBois is a certified Level I Teaching Professional with the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and completed the United States Tennis Association (USTA) "High Performance Coaching" certification in 2006.
