"I am very excited to welcome Theo Woodward as our new men's and women's assistant coach," said head squash coach Hansi Wiens. "Theo is a great fit for our program, and will help us achieve our goals and keep the program strong.

Woodward studied Commerce at the University of Birmingham in the UK, graduating with honors and a prize for his extended study on Squash Sponsorship.
