    Northwestern hosts Michigan State and IUPUI on Sunday

    Arvid Swan is in his third season as assistant men's tennis coach at Northwestern. He assists in the day-to-day operations of the team, which includes running team practice, organizing team travel, recruiting nationally and internationally, and conducting individual workouts. In the summer, Swan co-directs the Wildcat tennis camps.

    Swan made NU tennis history prior to the 2006 Big Ten Championships, as he was named associate head coach by NU head coach Paul Torricelli.

    "He (Swan) has taken on more responsibility this year and is extremely proactive," Torricelli said. "In every sense he has earned the title of associate head coach."

    With the promotion, Swan became the first coach in program history to earn the title of associate head coach.

    "Arvid made a real impact his first season and is already an integral art of our program," Torricelli said. "He was an intense competitor during his playing career and always a team leader. Arvid's commitment and work ethic is a real asset to NU tennis, just as they were during his playing days."

    A four-year letterwinner at Michigan (1995-98), Swan captained his team two of those seasons. He earned All-Big Ten honors in 1996, the same year in which he helped his squad win the conference title.

    Swan also was a three-time member of the Academic All-Big Ten team. As a senior, he helped lead his squad to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 10 seasons.

    Swan attended Indiana and received his law degree and master's degree in accounting in 2002. He and his wife Bridget reside currently in Chicago.
