ITA Honors Magill For Longtime Contributions
Dan Magill

May 25, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. --- With the NCAA Tennis Championships in full swing in Athens, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) held its annual Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame induction ceremony Wednesday night, welcoming six new members into the exclusive club while also honoring former Georgia men’s tennis coach Dan Magill.

Magill – who served as Georgia’s coach from 1955-88, made unmatched contributions to the ITA over the past 28 years as the founder and curator of the Hall of Fame as well as the chairman of its committee. He was instrumental in bringing the Hall of Fame to the UGA campus and has maintained its archives and memorabilia since its dedication in 1984.

In his 34-year tenure as head coach of the Bulldogs, Magill posted a record of 706-183, which at the time made him the all-time winningest coach in NCAA Division I history. Magill's teams won a record 13 SEC outdoor championships and eight indoor league titles, while five of his players won national collegiate individual titles.

In 1996, Magill was inducted into the Circle of Honor, the UGA Athletic Association’s Hall of Fame, and in the fall of 1999 the Sanford Stadium press box was dedicated in his honor. He was a member of the ITA Hall of Fame’s 1989 induction class.
