FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas men's tennis head coach Andy Jackson announced the hiring of assistant coach Nestor Briceno on Friday.

"We are very pleased to begin working with Nestor," Coach Jackson said. "He is a very hard working and intelligent young man, and obviously he has a world class tennis background. We had a very productive four years together at Florida both on and off the court. I have a great deal of respect for Nestor having watched him mature and grow and succeed as a player and a student, and we are confident he can help our student-athletes at Arkansas achieve on and off the court at the highest level. He will be one of the best young coaches in the nation."

Briceno most recently worked as associate head coach with George Washington University while pursuing his MBA. He also served as associate head coach at Princeton University during the 2008-09 season.

"I am very grateful and excited for the opportunity Coach Jackson and the University of Arkansas athletic department has afforded me," Coach Briceno said. "It's great to be back in the SEC and be part of one of the nation's premier sports programs."

Briceno will reconnect with Coach Jackson, his coach during his undergraduate years at the University of Florida. Briceno is a graduate of the University of Florida, the University of Alabama School of Law and is finishing his MBA from George Washington University. Briceno won the National Clay Court Championships as a junior and was ranked the No. 1 U.S. junior each age group. He is also a Davis Cup Invitee, Eddie Herr Invitational finalist and US Open Jr. Championship participant. Briceno speaks three languages, Spanish, Portuguese and English, and is well travelled across the globe.

While at Florida, each of his teams finished as a top 10 ranked team with the 2005 team reaching the NCAA Tournament semifinal. The Gators also won the 2005 SEC regular season championship and finished second in the 2008 SEC tournament. Briceno served as a three-year team captain for the Gators, finishing with 104 singles career wins, ranked fifth in Florida history, and 170 combined singles and doubles career wins, eighth-most in Florida history.
