In 2019, Lloyd Bruce Burgess gave up his comfortable well paying job as the Director of Tennis for Genesis Health Clubs in order to pursue his dream of becoming a head college tennis coach. He joined the University of South Florida staff as a volunteer assistant where he served for 5 months before being named the men’s assistant coach at the University of Iowa in January 2020. He helped the Hawkeyes to a historic season before learning last summer that the program would be eliminated at the end of the 2021 season.
In this podcast, we discuss Lloyd’s decision to step away from a successful career to join the college coaching ranks; how his years in management apply to his role as a college coach; and how he is dealing with having his career disrupted once again, this time through no fault of his own.
