Boys Tennis Coach Mark Fodness Retires After 41 Seasons

For Mark Fodness, coaching tennis has always been a labor of love.

“The biggest thing for me was that it never felt like a job,” said the Bemidji High School boys tennis head coach. “For me, it was just how much fun it was to go to work every day. I always looked forward to going to practice, I looked forward to our home meets.”

And now, after 41 seasons and more than 400 victories across three programs, Fodness is retiring from his final head coaching post -- the same spot where it all began.

Fodness finishes his tenure with a 166-103 record with the boys team, as well as a 404-149 mark across all three programs. And he was sure to mention that it’s “nice to end with an undefeated season.”
