2010 ITA Southern Region Assistant Coach of the Year

Not only is Toby Hansson an accomplished player, but he is one of the top young coaches in the United States.

Hansson, who recently completed his seventh year with the Rebels, was promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2013 season. Hansson has helped the Rebels maintain their tradition of excellence on the court and continue bringing in top-notch talent to the program.

In his seven seasons, the Rebels have finished among the nation's top 10 four times and the top 15 five times. Also in Hansson's tenure, the Rebels have produced the most All-Americans in the country with 11. The Rebels tied for the most All-Americans in the country in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2012.

Ole Miss returned to the top 10 in 2013 and made its 20th consecutive NCAA appearance, hosting the first and second rounds for the 11th time. Individual achievements included two-time All-Americans Nik Scholtz and Jonas Lutjen becoming the seventh Rebel duo to reach the NCAA Final Four in doubles. Ole Miss was one of just two schools to have multiple All-Americans in both singles and doubles. Scholtz and Lutjen were two of just six players to achieve a final top 20 ranking in singles and a top 10 ranking in doubles.

In 2012, Hansson helped coach the Rebels to their 19th straight NCAA appearance and the Sweet Sixteen for the 16th time. Nik Scholtz earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals in singles, while Marcel Thiemann and Chris Thiemann reached the Final Four in doubles. All three were joined on the All-America team by Jonas Lutjen, as the Rebels led the nation with four All-Americans.

In 2011, Hansson helped the Rebels earn their 18th NCAA appearance. Marcel Thiemann advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second straight year and teamed with his brother, Chris, to end the year ranked No. 11 in doubles.

Hansson helped coach Ole Miss to its ninth consecutive SEC West title and 17th NCAA appearance in 2010. Marcel Thiemann advanced to the NCAA singles quarterfinals and became the 25th All-American in the history of the program. Hansson coached Marcel and his brother, Chris, to a top 10 national doubles ranking and a 10-1 record in the SEC at No. 1. For his achievements, Hansson was honored as the ITA Southern Region Assistant Coach of the Year.

In 2009, Hansson helped direct the Rebels to the SEC regular season championship, their second consecutive SEC Tournament Championship and their eighth straight SEC West title. The Rebels ended the year ranked No. 4 in the nation. A finalist for the ITA Southeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year, Hansson coached NCAA Singles Champion Devin Britton, and Jonas Berg and Bram ten Berge, who spent 14 weeks at No. 1 in the nation.

In his second season (2008), Hansson helped guide the Rebels to the SEC West title, the SEC Tournament Championship, the NCAA Elite Eight and a final national ranking of No. 6.

Hansson helped coach four Rebels to All-America honors and five players to All-SEC honors. He coached Erling Tveit and Jonas Berg, who advanced to the NCAA Doubles Championship Final as well as Semifinalists Bram ten Berge and Matthias Wellermann.

In his first season with the Rebels (2007), Hansson helped guide the team to the SEC West title, the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and a final national ranking of No. 7. He helped coach three players to All-America honors and four to All-SEC accolades.

Hansson, a native of Bjärred, Sweden, was an assistant coach at Texas Tech in 2004-05, where he helped lead the Red Raiders to the NCAA Final 16 and their best season ever. The team finished with a 25-4 record, and was ranked as high as No. 9 in the country at one point during the year.

Prior to his stint at Texas Tech, Hansson played professionally on the ATP Tour in Europe, North and Central America and Asia.

One of the top collegiate players during his career at SMU, Hansson earned All-America honors in singles and doubles. As captain of the team in 2000, he was named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year and first team all-conference for both singles and doubles.

During his career, Hansson was ranked as high as No. 2 in the country in doubles and No. 13 in singles for the Mustangs. He led the Mustangs to two WAC championships, three consecutive NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances and two top-15 national finishes.

Hansson graduated from SMU in 2000 with a B.A. in International Studies. He received his masters in International Studies from Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden, in June of 2006.
