SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse has hired Younes Limam as the head coach of women’s tennis.

Limam comes to Syracuse from Rice after serving as recruiting coordinator for the Owls and playing a key role in helping turn the program into a national power in the last five seasons.

Syracuse is coming off a 5-15 season.

Limam also served as assistant coach at Texas-Arlington from 2007-09 and was a graduate assistant at Central Oklahoma from 2004-06. In his last season with the Mavericks in 2009, they went a perfect 11-0 to win the Southland Conference title and advanced to the NCAA championship.

Limam played at Drury University from 2000-03, posting an 87-17 singles record, second all-time in victories in school history.

Interim head coach Shelley George will remain on staff.
