Columbus State University head tennis coach Evan Isaacs was one of only five NCAA coaches across the nation highlighted in the ongoing Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Coach Masterclass series.
Turning CSU into a national powerhouse, Isaacs was among the speakers in the Marketing and Community Engagement chapter. Throughout his tenure as head coach of the Cougars, Isaacs has been entrenched in the tennis community in Columbus and the surrounding area making community engagement a pillar of his program. He is currently heavily involved with the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA) and helped create the CSU Tennis Classic, a fundraising event that brings together the Cougars and the Columbus community for clinics, pro demonstrations and exhibition matches. Isaacs was the only NCAA Division II coach in the nation to participate in the Masterclass series.
The ITA Coach Masterclass is a course that covers many important topics from fundraising and budgeting to player development and team culture. Tennis coaches of NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA, and Junior/Community College teams can improve their coaching skills by having access to many educational resources, as well as direction from current varsity coaches.
The course includes nine chapters with one being released every Tuesday through Oct. 27. ITA members can access each chapter immediately, while non-members have access one week following the release.

In his 20th season at CSU, Isaacs is considered one of the nation’s top coaches. Leading the Cougars to the 2018 NCAA Division II men’s tennis national championship, Isaacs has amassed over 300 wins with both the men’s and women’s teams. He has won numerous national awards, including the 2019 Steve Wilkinson College Coach of the Year presented by the United States Professional Tennis Association and the 2018 Wilson ITA National Coach of the Year.
