Tyler Robinson returns to the Somerset Tennis Complex in 2015-16, not as an assistant coach, but for his first season at the helm of the Seahawk men's and women's tennis programs. Robinson was selected as the program's 15th head coach on August 2015.
Before taking the reins of the St. Mary's tennis teams, the Leonardtown, Maryland native spent three seasons (2012-2015) as an assistant coach for the Seahawks.
Robinson was a top competitor for the Salisbury University Sea Gulls from 2003 to 2006. A four-year starter, he picked five All-Capital Athletic Conference awards between singles and doubles action. Robinson served as a team captain during his senior season and earned first team All-CAC honors for his singles play that same year.
He played his high school tennis locally at Leonardtown High School while his mother, Cindy Robinson, taught tennis classes at St. Mary's as part of the College's Physical Fitness and Recreational Sport program.
Robinson served as a tennis instructor at the Breton Bay Country Club from 1999 to 2002, providing group lessons for 4-16 year olds.
He graduated from Salisbury in 2006 with a bachelor's in computer science and a minor in mathematics. Robinson then pursued his master's in computer sciecne at Florida Institute of Technology from 2007 to 2010.
