Ty Schaub

Ty Schaub was hired as associate head coach for the Gamecocks’ women’s tennis program in July 2019.

Schaub, a native of Lexington, Ohio, came to Carolina from the University of Tennessee where he served as the assistant coach with women’s program. In his final season at UT, Schaub was named the ITA Ohio Valley Region Assistant Coach of the Year.

After seeing the 2019-20 season canceled due to COVID-19, Schaub helped Epley guide the Gamecocks to their 26th NCAA Appearance in a row, tied for the eighth longest active streak in the nation. South Carolina also earned its 30th NCAA bid in 39 chances, making it one of only 13 schools in the country with at least 30 appearances. The squad got off to a rough start that saw it 4-9 overall and 1-5 in the SEC after 13 matches, but Schaub and Epley managed to help their team engineer an outstanding turnaround. The Gamecocks ran off six league victories in a row and finished with a 7-6 record in SEC play, their fifth winning record in the conference in a row to establish a new program record. The Gamecocks also advanced to the SEC Tournament semifinals after upsetting No. 2-seeded Florida in the quarterfinals.

While his first season with South Carolina was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Schaub still managed to help the Gamecocks to a number of accomplishments. During the fall, Megan Davies reached the semifinals of the ITA Fall National Championships, which helped her end the preseason ranked No. 28 after beginning it at No. 125. Mia Horvit finished at No. 27 after starting 49th, and Silvia Chinellato and Emma Shelton earned a No. 18 doubles rating after beginning the season unranked. During the spring, the Gamecocks were 8-4 and the only 4-0 team in SEC play when the season was first suspended and then later canceled. Just prior to the season being suspended, Horvit was named the UTR/ITA National Player of the Week and SEC Player of the Week.

Schaub spent three years with Tennessee prior to joining South Carolina, amassing a 57-32 overall record during his stint. As a student-athlete at Ohio State, Schaub’s teams finished with a 129-8 record and claimed four Big Ten Conference championships. He served as the team captain in 2009 when the Buckeyes were No. 1 in the country and reached the NCAA Tournament title match.

After a decorated college career, Schaub assisted at Cornell (2009-10), Pennsylvania (2011-14), Iowa (2014-15) and San Diego (2015-16) before his gig with the Volunteers. During his time with Penn, he helped bring in three top-25 classes.

At Iowa, Schaub helped the Hawkeyes reach their highest ranking in program history at No. 42. He also coached Matt Hagan and Dominic Patrick to a Big Ten Doubles Championship, the second for Iowa. Finding more success, Schaub assisted in San Diego’s West Coast Conference Championship.

Schaub graduated with a degree in communications with a focus in analysis and practices. During his 2006-07 season, he was named a Big Ten Conference Men’s Tennis Sportsmanship Award Winner.
