PRINCETON - Megan Bradley-Rose, the head coach of the Princeton women's tennis program, has announced that she will depart her position later this spring.

Bradley-Rose is leaving to pursue opportunities in her home state of Florida, where her husband, Jesse, has taken a new job. Bradley-Rose will stay on through the end of the NCAA tournament, where Princeton may have individuals competing.

"Although we are surprised by Megan's decision to pursue other opportunities as she transitions into the next stage of her married and professional life, we greatly appreciate her tremendous contributions to the women's tennis program and her ability to sustain the competitive excellence at the Lenz Tennis Center," Ford Family Director of Athletics Gary Walters said. "We wish her nothing but the best in the next phase of her life."

Bradley-Rose was hired in the summer of 2009 and enjoyed three successful seasons, winning the 2010 Ivy League championship following an undefeated Ivy campaign and a school-record 20 wins. The 2011 and 2012 seasons also saw winning records both in the Ivy League and overall.

Princeton was Bradley-Rose's first head coaching position after serving as an assistant coach at the University of Miami, her alma mater. Bradley-Rose finished with a record of 44-25 overall and 17-4 in the Ivy League, with 40 of the team's 69 matches during her tenure coming against opponents in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's national top 75. The Tigers were ranked in the ITA top 75 for nearly the entirety of Bradley-Rose's three spring seasons with a high of No. 27 in March 2010.

"I want to thank Gary Walters and the search committee who gave me the opportunity to lead this program," Bradley-Rose said. "We have an amazing group of young women, and I am very fortunate to have been a part of their lives. My husband has been very supportive of my career, and although this is a difficult choice to leave Princeton, I think this is in the best interest of our family at this time."

A national search for Bradley-Rose's successor will begin immediately.
