Jim Berrigan begins his 18th season as the head coach of the men's and women's tennis teams at Babson College in 2016-17.
Berrigan came to Babson after coaching the men's and women's programs at the Wentworth Institute of Technology from 1995 to 1999. Since his arrival, Berrigan has led the men's team to double-digit victories on 11 occasions, nine trips to the NEWMAC Tournament final, and the program's first NEWMAC regular-season title in 2015. He has also led the Green and White to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances - including the program's first NCAA Tournament win in 2014. With 166 total wins in his career, he has the most victories of any coach in program history.
A 1983 graduate of Newton North High School, Berrigan graduated from Framingham State College in 1988 with a BA in economics, and later received a postgraduate degree in sports marketing from George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario, in 1992. Berrigan first matriculated at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, where he excelled in tennis, playing second singles and first doubles. He then transferred to Framingham State in his sophomore season, where he helped lead the Rams' tennis team to an ECAC bid in his first year. Berrigan also enjoyed an excellent basketball career at Framingham State, guiding the Rams to the ECAC finals in his junior season and setting an NCAA record for most consecutive three-point field goals made in a game with 10 in a row against Western New England College during his senior season.
Berrigan has worked professionally for Branada Sports Communications in Toronto, State Street Corporation of Boston, and most recently for Paymentech in Salem, N.H. He currently resides in Hampstead, N.H. with his wife, Ann, and two children, Jack and Maggie.
