STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State women’s tennis coach Daryl Greenan has named James Bryce as an assistant for the Lady Bulldogs program.

Greenan says Bryce will replace Courtney Steinbock, who accepted the same position at Oklahoma State this summer.

The hiring, announced Monday, is pending the approval of the Board of Trustees, Institutions of Higher Learning.

Bryce joins the Bulldog staff after serving as head coach of the men’s and women’s tennis teams at Saint Leo University since August 2009. He took over programs that were unranked when he arrived. By his second season, he had both the men and women’s teams in NCAA Division II’s top 35 nationally. And this past spring, both squads ended the year rated No. 8 nationally.

Bryce also served as an assistant at Columbus State.
