Grant Chen has followed Emerson’s advice of “do not go where the path may lead but go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Grant started his college career on the UCLA club team before joining the UCLA tennis team staff as a student-manager.
He then advanced to Director of Operations, Assistant Coach, Associate Head Coach, and was named the head men’s coach at SMU in 2018. Grant is the epitome of the modern-day college coach.
