Nebraska women's tennis hired German Dalmagro to start on August 12 as assistant coach for 23-year head coach Scott Jacobson. Dalmagro is a former member of the Kansas women's tennis coaching staff where he spent six seasons with the Jayhawks.
"We are honored to have German joining our Husker staff," Head Coach Scott Jacobson said. "He is an accomplished collegiate coach, great player, established recruiter, and fits the philosophy of our program very, very well. German is an incredibly genuine person and someone I know this team will grow to appreciate. I feel tremendously privileged to have the opportunity to work with him and can’t wait to get started."
In his final season with the Jayhawks in 2012-13, the team went 11-10 and made it to the Big 12 tournament where they fell in the second round. At KU, his responsibilities included on-court coaching, organizing travel and aiding in recruiting. His strong ties to the southern states landed standout products for KU during his time on staff. Dalmagro joined Kansas following a very successful playing and coaching career at Division II University of West Florida.
Dalmagro was an assistant coach of both the men's and women's teams at UWF prior to joining the KU roster. During his year with West Florida, both teams reached the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament. Dalmagro's coaching stay at West Florida was brief, but his impact saw one of the most decorated tennis players in school history.
Dalmagro had a successful individual career at UWF and Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Dalmagro was a member of UWF's back-to-back NCAA Division II National Championship teams in 2004 and 2005, and was part of the 2005 Gulf South Conference Champion team and 2004 Gulf South runner-up squad. Dalmagro's career was highlighted by All-America honors in 2004 (doubles), 2003 (singles and doubles) and 2002 (singles and doubles). Dalmagro was ranked nationally as high as No. 3 in doubles and No. 11 in singles.
Dalmagro saw success off the court while at West Florida, as he helped the Argonauts earn the 2004 National Award for highest team GPA and was named to the Dean's List.
Prior to transferring to West Florida, Dalmagro played at ABAC. At ABAC, he was the NJCAA Player of the Year in 2003 and the individual National Champion in 2002. Dalmagro's tennis coaching experience stretches beyond West Florida. In 2004 and 2005, Dalmagro served as the head coach at the Nike Tennis Camp in Lawrenceville, N.J., and also coached at Abraham Baldwin College in Tifton, Ga., from 2002 to 2003.
Dalmagro graduated from West Florida, earning a degree in business administration with a specialization in management.
