Best Coach

Geoff Macdonald, Vanderbilt

With all due respect to Jeff Fisher, Barry Trotz, Bobby Johnson or anyone else you want to name, Vandy women's tennis coach Macdonald consistently meets one of the most difficult challenges any coach in any sport faces—he keeps a good program good. While Johnson has pulled VU's football program out of the doldrums, and Fisher and Trotz have seen the fortunes of their respective pro sports teams fluctuate (sometimes wildly), Macdonald's teams have finished each of the last 14 seasons ranked among the top 16 in the nation. Five times during that stretch the Commodores have finished among the top 10, and once they were the national championship runners-up. DAVID BOCLAIR
