John Moreland is in his 12th season as the lead assistant coach for the Navy men's tennis program. The Mids have compiled a 169-119 dual match record during his 11 seasons, which includes a record of 57-19 against Patriot League foes. Over the last six seasons, Navy has posted an overall record of 104-62, a 38-4 mark versus league foes and has won five Patriot League Tournament titles.
Moreland was selected as the 2009 ITA Northeast Region Coach of the Year following a season in which he helped guide the Mids to an 18-8 record and the third of the team's four straight NCAA Tournament appearances.
After graduating from Washington College (Chestertown, Md.) in 1996, Moreland immediately began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach at Marietta College (Marietta, Ohio). He would return to his alma mater in 1998 as an assistant coach for both tennis programs at the school. During his two years at the school he coached two singles players and four doubles players who earned All-America honors, as well as a pair of ITA regional singles and doubles champions.
Moreland would serve as the head coach of the men's and women's teams at St. Mary's College for one season prior to arriving at Navy. He would coach the conference women's rookie of the year during his lone campaign at St. Mary's.
In addition to his Bachelor's Degree from Washington College, he also earned a Master's Degree from the school in 2004. Moreland married his wife, Kay, during the summer of 2011.
