BIG RAPIDS — The Ferris State University men’s and women’s tennis program recently added Santiago “Jaime” Nanez as its assistant coach, in an announcement made by first-year head coach Chad Berryhill.

Nanez will serve as the assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s teams in addition to working as an assistant professional at the Ferris State Racquet and Fitness Center.

“We’re excited to have Jaime on board and I’m confident he will have a lasting impact on our program,” Berryhill said.  “He will be a tremendous asset as we continue to work towards winning championships on both the men’s and women’s sides.”
