The Utah State University athletics department recently named Aaron Paajananen head coach of the men’s tennis program. Prior to being hired on at USU, Paajanen spent four years coaching men’s and women’s tennis at the University of Detroit Mercy in Michigan.  During his time there, the men’s squad improved every year and set a school record with 15 victories in 2018. Paajanen was also named the Horizon League Coach of the Year that season, the first such honor in Mercy’s history.  In his first season with the women’s team, he coached a player to a perfect 9-0 record, while also helping another earn a second-team all-Horizon League accolade. He has previously coached as an assistant at Santa Clara for two years and at Loyola Marymount, where his Division I career began. During his time at Loyola, his team earned eight all-West Coast Conference honors. Coaching tennis began as a family affair, as his first role was serving underneath his father on the men’s team and his mother on the women’s side at Paradise Valley Community College in Phoenix, Arizona.  – SCOTT FROEHLICH, usustatesman – Read More
