Luc Godin is in his second season as an assistant women's tennis coach at Auburn. He joined the Auburn women's tennis staff in January 2012.
In his first season, Auburn showed marked improvement. Working in tandem with new head coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner, the Tigersimproved to a 3-8 mark in SEC play after winning just one conference match in 2010-11. Auburn also also won back-to-back league matches for the first time in nearly three years and reached three victories in the rigorous SEC for the first time since 2010.
Godin joined Auburn from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, La. where he served as the head coach during the 2010-11 season. He joined Northwestern State on the heels of a conference championship as head coach in 2010 at NCAA Division II Drury (Mo.).
Godin also was an assistant coach at Tyler Junior College on three NJCAA national champion women's teams before moving to Northwestern State as a graduate assistant in 2008. Godin helped guide the Lady Demon team to the greatest season in school history in 2010, a 21-2 campaign that culminated with Southland Conference regular-season and tournament titles, and the school's first appearance in the NCAA Team Tournament.
He spent 2009-10 as head men's coach at Drury (Mo.), guiding a team that finished 17-5 in the spring, winning its fourth Great Lakes Valley Conference title in five seasons. The 16th-ranked Panthers lost in the NCAA Division II Round of 16 to fourth-ranked Barry, the eventual national champions.
Along with his experience at Tyler JC, Godin also ran an ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) camp for one season in central Florida.
A native of Petit-rocher, New Brunswick, Canada, Godin qualified for and played in nationals in his home country, and played in some ATP futures events before choosing to focus on his coaching career.
Born July 5, 1976, Godin graduated from the College of the Ozarks in 2006 and earned a master's in health and human performance with a concentration in health promotion in 2009 from Northwestern State.
