Volunteer Assistant Coach
Andrews returns to an Irish program of which he was a two-time captain just three seasons ago. During his career, Andrews reached a No. 20 national ranking in singles and a No. 7 national ranking in doubles. He ranks second in program history in dual doubles wins (68); third in overall doubles wins (93); fifth in dual singles wins (77) and wins at No. 1 singles (38); and seventh in all-time singles wins (113).
Andrews was a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year (2012 and 2013) and, as a junior, was selected as the BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Player after leading the Irish to their final championship title in that conference. He was a four-time all-conference selection (three BIG EAST, one Atlantic Coast Conference), was a 2013 CoSIDA Academic All-American and the winner of the 2014 National ITA/Arthur Ashe Jr. Sportsmanship and Leadership Award.
As a senior, Andrews was recognized by Notre Dame with both the Byron V. Kanaley Award and the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award. The Kanaley Award is Notre Dame’s most prestigious honor awarded to Irish student-athletes and is presented annually to senior monogram athletes who are most exemplary as students and leaders. The Francis Patrick O’Connor Award is presented upon nomination of head coaches and is given to one male and one female student-athlete who best display the total embodiment of the true spirit of Notre Dame as exemplified by their contribution and inspiration to their teams and who possess such characteristics as caring, courage, confidence, encouragement, humility, honesty, humor, kindness and patience.
