John Moreland is in his 13th season as the associate head coach for the Navy men's tennis program. The Mids have compiled a 186-131 dual match record during his 12 seasons, which includes a record of 62-22 against Patriot League foes. Over the last seven seasons, Navy has posted an overall record of 121-74, a 43-7 mark versus league foes and has won five Patriot League Tournament titles.
Moreland was selected as the 2009 ITA Northeast Region Assistant 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. He also led the Mid-Atlantic Section Team at the 2013 USTA Boys 18s National Team Championship.
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 and his wife, Kay, reside in Annapolis.
