Adam Steinberg

“My philosophy is and will always be about the team. My players understand that they are playing for something bigger than themselves and that making their teammates better is the No. 1 priority on an everyday basis.

“Our core values include selflessness, hard work, integrity and accountability. Representing their university in the classroom and on and off the court in the most positive way is the backbone of the Michigan men's tennis program.”
