Taylor Fogleman begins his third season as an assistant coach for the Tulane women's tennis team in 2011-12.

In Fogleman's second season on the staff, he helped the program to a 17-7 overall record and a season-high No. 38 national ranking. Along the way, the Wave put together a seven-match win streak, recorded a win over the nation's 38th-ranked squad, was 8-1 at home, 4-1 against Conference USA rivals and won 12 of its final 14 matches to end the year. The Green Wave completed the season ranked 50th nationally and fourth in the Southern Region in the final ITA polls.

For his efforts, Fogleman was named the 2013 Southern Region Assistant Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).

During his first season on the Green Wave staff, Fogleman played a key role in helping the program to a 19-6 overall record, a season-high national ranking of No. 52 and the Wave advanced to within one match of playing for the Conference USA Championship. Tulane's 19 victories are the most wins for the team since the 2004-05 campaign and Tulane was rated among the top programs in the country for the final 15 weeks of the season.

With Fogleman assisting TU head coach Terri Sisk, the 2012 Louisiana Coach of the Year, Tulane was 3-1 against Louisiana schools and advanced to the C-USA Tournament semifinals for the first time since 2005. TU also strung together a season-best six straight wins on two different occasions during the spring.

The Green Wave concluded its best season in seven years ranked No. 58 in the final national poll and was No. 4 in the final Southern Region. TU recorded victories over three teams in the national rankings, including Penn State (51), Ohio State (59), College of Charleston (63).

With the help of Fogleman's tutelage, four Green Wave ranked among the top-20 singles players in the Southern Region, including senior Mariam Kurdadze (7) and the junior trio of Emma Levy (14), Caroline Magnusson (17) and Caroline Thornton (20). TU's top doubles teams were also among the region's best. The No. 1 duo of Kurdadze and Levy are ranked No. 7, while the No. 2 tandem of Magnusson and Thornton are No. 8.

A native of New Orleans and a 2005 graduate of Jesuit High School, Fogleman, 25, came to Tulane following an All-American career at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where he was a four-year letterman and two-time first team All-America standout from 2005-09. During his career, he led the Tar Heels in both singles and doubles victories in his final three seasons and helped lead UNC to 87 wins and four straight trips the NCAA Tournament, including a pair of Round of 16 appearances.

In 2008, Fogleman advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals and finished fourth in the nation in doubles. During his senior campaign, he was named to the 2009 All-Atlantic Coast Conference team as well as the All-ACC Academic Honor Roll and was an NCAA Semifinalist. Fogleman eclipsed 100 career doubles wins during his final season and served as a team captain.

He reached a career high of No. 551 in the world in doubles in 2010, winning three professional titles along the way.

Fogleman received his bachelor's degree from North Carolina in 2009. His mother Jana played tennis at Tulane from 1977-1981.
