PRINCETON, N.J. -- Glenn Michibata, an enormously well-liked and well-respected member of the Princeton University Department of Athletics, has resigned as head coach of the men's tennis team.

"We would like to thank Glenn for his tenure at Princeton," said Ford Family Director of Athletics Gary Walters. "Glenn has been a firm believer in our mission of Education Through Athletics, and he has been a great role model for the athletes who have played for him. We wish him nothing but the best in the future."

Michibata had a 145-121 record with Princeton, and his teams had winning Ivy League records in seven of his seasons. He coached three Ivy League Players of the Year during his time at Princeton.

"I'd like to thank Gary for the opportunity," Michibata said. "It's been a privilege to coach here. This place has had such a positive impact on me and my family. I hope I've left a positive impact as well. I wish the team and the University nothing but success moving forward."

A national search for his successor will be held.
