Read Full Bio

In just three seasons with the University of Oklahoma, David Mullins has already left a mark on the OU women’s tennis program.  With Mullins at the helm, the Sooners have made back-to-back NCAA Championship appearances, won seven Big 12 position titles, five ITA regional championships and recorded two-straight seasons with 18 wins.

OU finished a program-best third place in the Big 12 conference in 2011, with seven individuals and doubles pairs finishing in the top five at their position. 

OU also claimed two of the three doubles Big 12 position championships and won two singles position titles under Mullins’ tutelage in 2011.

Mullins led the team to overall records of 18-6 and 19-7 in 2010 and 2011 respectively, which marked just the third time in program history that OU had back-to-back seasons with at least 18 wins. 

OU spent 13 straight weeks ranked in the ITA top 25 in 2011 and finished the season ranked No. 24 in the country.

In his three years with the Sooners, Mullins has coached the 2009 Big 12 Player of the Year, seven All-Big 12 selections and 14 Academic All-Big 12 team members.

Mullins, the 2008 Intercollegiate Tennis Association Assistant Coach of the Year, was named the head women's tennis coach at the University of Oklahoma in June 2008.

Mullins completed his third season as the assistant coach for the women's team at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., in 2008. Mullins helped lead the Wildcats to at least the round of 16 of the NCAA championships in each of his three seasons. In 2007, he was named the ITA Midwest Region Assistant Coach of the Year. During his stint with the Wildcats, NU posted a record of 77-12.

Mullins' three years of success began in 2006 when Northwestern advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament and captured a doubles title. The Wildcats advanced to the round of 16 in 2007 and returned to the quarterfinals in 2008.

Mullins began his collegiate coaching career at DePaul, as the Associate Head Men's Coach in 2005, after working in his native Ireland as an assistant tennis professional at Donnybrook L.T.C. in Dublin for two years. With Donnybrook, Mullins worked with elite junior Irish tennis players and also assisted with the Irish National Team.

Mullins has traveled throughout the world to various ITF and ATP events as both a player and coach to some of Ireland's top junior tennis players. As a collegiate player at Fresno State, he helped the Bulldogs to a WAC title in 1999 and a perennial top 20 national ranking. Individually, he advanced with doubles partner Peter Luczak to the NCAA Tournament where the duo earned All-America honors and a No. 9 national ranking in 2001.

Professionally, Mullins was ranked as both a singles and doubles player and was a member of Ireland's Davis Cup team. He played in Davis Cup competition from 1999-2004, representing Ireland against Ukraine, Hungary, Greece, Egypt and Slovenia.
As a junior tennis player, he competed in both the Junior Wimbledon and the Junior French Open.

Mullins graduated from Fresno State with a degree in business and finance in 2001. Mullins and his wife, Laura, have two sons, Liam and Damien.

Excellent drills!

It was great. The staff was awesome! I really enjoyed all the drills because it has really helped my foot work. Would have liked some work on my serves but overall everything was great! I wish it had just been a few days longer!

Better Every Year

There was a vast improvement from this summer's camp compared to last summer's camp. Last summer she had fun with the other campers but didn't feel like she was challenged on the courts. This summer she loved all of it. She said it was the highlight of her summer. She has made great friends that she keeps us with during the school year and was most excited that she felt like the tennis was significantly better this year.

Plans For Next Summer!

I enjoyed the tennis camp at OU a lot. It was my first experience in a tennis camp and I want to repeat it soon. My parents think it was worth the experience and worth the time spent on this activity. We are already making plans to attend this tennis camp next year.
