Aaron Wilf enters his third year as Moravian's Director of Tennis in 2020-21. Wilf had a very successful first year while leading the women's program to a Landmark Conference Championship and the program's first-ever NCAA Division III Tournament victory in 2018-19. Wilf was selected as the Landmark Conference Women's Coach of the Year while seeing five players named to the All-Conference Teams. The women’s squad finished with a school record 20 wins, had a .909 overall winning percentage, and finished the year undefeated in conference play.

On the men's side in his debut season, Wilf led the Greyhounds to a 12-8 mark which quadrupled the win total from the previous year while putting an end to the program’s 3 year long conference losing streak with wins against Catholic and Elizabethtown. The 12 wins were the 2nd highest win total in more than a decade and they had one player named to the All-Conference Team.

Overall, the tennis programs set a record for the most combined wins in a single season with 32, and 12 total players along with the entire women’s team were named to the ITA scholar athlete teams for the 2018-2019 academic year. Wilf also served on the NCAA Division III Women’s Tennis Regional Advisory Committee. 

Wilf came to Moravian from Frostburg State University where he served as the school’s first full-time Head Men’s and Women’s tennis coach since the summer of 2016.

In his first year with the Bobcats, Wilf helped the men's team double its win total from the previous year and led the women's squad to more than triple their win total from the 2015-16 campaign. The teams posted a combined 11 wins which is tied for the 2nd most since Frostburg entered the CAC, which is considered one of the toughest tennis conferences in all of Division III. The squads improved in every major statistical category and won 32 more individual matches than the previous year. By the 2nd year his team earned unprecedented individual wins against multiple national powerhouses in the Capital Athletic Conference. He also led his squads to success off the court as well as both the men’s and women’s teams were recognized as winners of the ITA academic team award and 8 of his student-athletes in 2017-2018 earned ITA scholar athlete status for the first time in school history.

Prior to Frostburg Wilf was responsible for guiding the La Roche College women's tennis program to a record-setting five-year run.

A two-time Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Coach of the Year, Wilf was responsible for the three best seasons in terms of wins in the program's history.

In 2012, La Roche rebounded from a slow start to the season to earn the program's first NCAA Tournament bid after winning the AMCC Tournament Championship. Wilf's Redhawks upset the league's top team and a seven-time champion en route to the league title. For his efforts, Wilf was selected as the AMCC Coach of the Year for second-straight season after guiding the Redhawks to a program record 10 wins. He also served as a representative on the NCAA Regional Women's Tennis Committee.

Wilf achieved immediate success in his first season at the helm of La Roche in 2011. His team posted the AMCC's highest winning percentage, earned the highest team GPA at the school, broke over 20 school records and collected the most wins in a season at that time. His Redhawks finished third in the AMCC regular-season and tournament standings, which were the best finishes in school history at the time and he collected his first AMCC Coach of the Year award.

From 2013-15, Wilf's teams collected numerous All-AMCC honors and he brought in the three largest recruiting classes in program history.

In the spring of 2016, Wilf also served as the head tennis coach at Plum Senior High School in Plum, Pa., leading the team to 10 wins, tying the single-season record.

Prior to becoming the head coach at La Roche, Wilf was the head coach at Chatham University. He led the Cougars to their best finishes in program history in the Presidents Athletic Conference after his 2009 team finished in third place and the 2010 squad captured fourth. In '09, he was named the PAC Women's Tennis Coach of the Year, while in 2010 he guided the team to a school record 10 wins.

While at La Roche College and Chatham University, Wilf served as an adjunct professor in the Physical Education Department where he taught tennis courses and served as a faculty supervisor for various independent studies. He also worked for several years as the Study Hall Coordinator.

Before joining the collegiate ranks, Wilf spent three years as the Head Tennis Coach at Butler High School winning the section title in his first year. In two of the three seasons his team's finished in the top 10 in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL), and he coached multiple players to individual section titles.
