Indiana women’s tennis head coach Ramiro Azcui will not return to the program next year, according to an Indiana Athletics release. The Hoosiers finished the 2024 season with a 6-20 record overall and 0-11 in the Big Ten. 

“Following an evaluation of the trajectory of our women's tennis program at the conclusion of the 2023-24 season, I concluded a change in leadership is necessary," Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Scott Dolson said in the release. 

Azcui became head coach of the program in 2017 after 24 years as associate head coach for Indiana. He replaced Lin Loring, who held the role for 50 years and is the winningest head coach in NCAA Division I women’s tennis history. 

The first four seasons under Azcui’s tutelage featured winning records, but following the 2019-20 season, Indiana’s success flipped. From 2021 to 2024, the Hoosiers only had one season with a winning record. 

“Our women's tennis program has a long and rich history of success on both the Big Ten and national level,” Dolson said. “And Ramiro has been a big part of that success during his 32 years of involvement with the program. We wish him well in his future endeavors." 

A national search for Azcui’s successor has begun, according to the release.
