COLLEGE STATION, Texas- Majorie Muller has resigned as Texas A&M women’s tennis assistant coach after serving three years at the position.
Muller gave birth to a son in the spring and has decided to be a full-time, stay-at-home mother.
“We really appreciate all of Majorie’s loyalty and support,” A&M head women’s tennis coach Bobby Kleinecke said. “A&M is still foremost in her heart, but with a new baby, priorities change and that is why she has decided to step down.”
During her three years as the Aggies’ assistant coach, Muller helped direct A&M to a combined 53-32 record, a second-place finish in the competitive Big 12 Conference in 2006 and three consecutive appearances in the second round of the NCAA Championship.
A national search for a replacement is underway.
Previously a standout player for the Aggies, the former Majorie Terburgh was a two-year letterwinner at Texas A&M, compiling a 40-23 singles record and a 47-21 mark in doubles from 2000-02. The Burgersdorp, South Africa, native was awarded the Aggie Heart Award as a junior after posting a 20-9 singles record, including a 10-1 mark in Big 12 matches. She also went 24-8 in doubles play while leading the Aggies to a 20-6 overall record and a No. 19 final national ranking.
As a senior, Muller was 20-15 in singles action and 23-13 in doubles as the Aggies won a then-record 23 matches, tied for second in the Big 12 and were listed No. 22 in the final national rankings.
