Tiley to lead South African team

UI men's tennis coach Craig Tiley was selected as Davis Cup captain for his native South Africa.

Tiley, the 1998 Big Ten Coach of the Year, has led the Illini to consecutive conference titles.

"My priority remains coaching the Illinois tennis team and winning a national title," Tiley said. "But coaching Davis Cup for South Africa was a great opportunity for both myself and the university."

South Africa's first Davis Cup competition is April 1999.
