Northwest Mississippi Community College has chosen Andy Wolf as the new head coach of the Ranger men’s and women’s tennis programs, the college announced on Monday morning, July 31.
“I am excited to be a part of the Ranger family,” Wolf said. “We are going to build a tennis program that the Northwest community will be proud of. I would like to thank Dr. Michael Heindl and [Northwest athletic director] Jake Gordon for this opportunity.”
Wolf comes to Northwest from DeSoto Central, where he has served as the Jaguars’ tennis coach for the past two seasons. While there, he helped DCHS to back-to-back Class 6A, Region II district championships in 2022-23, with multiple players qualifying for individual state championship tournaments.
Wolf began at DeSoto Central teaching middle school World Geography and U.S. History in 2016, while also assisting with the Jags’ middle school football program. Prior to his tenure at DeSoto Central, he was an insurance producer for Southaven-based State Farm agent Eric Irmscher from 2014-16 and served as an operations manager at FedEx from 1997-2013.
“Andy was able to rise to the top of the interview process, due to his knowledge of tennis and his experience as a head coach,” Gordon said. “He is already familiar with tennis athletes in this area and that will help him in recruiting to Northwest. We are excited to have Coach Wolf jump in and take over our program.”
Wolf obtained his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Crichton College in 1999 and received his master’s in educational leadership from Western Governors University.
