Giorgia Pozzan

Return to Coaches
Volunteer Assistant Coach

In her third season as volunteer assistant coach at Florida State, Pozzan helped guide the Seminoles back to the NCAA Championship for the first time in three seasons. Pozzan’s ability to translate her strong playing background into coaching has been instrumental in the Seminoles’ return to the national stage.

In 2012-13, Pozzan was a volunteer assistant coach at Houston. She helped lead the Cougars to a 21-6 record including trips to the NCAA Tournament and the Conference USA Championships.

After Houston, she spent a year as a teaching assistant at UH in the sociology department. During the summer she plays tennis in Italy in Serie B.

As a player at Houston, Pozzan led the Cougars both seasons in dual singles play. She finished her career with a record of 50-17, ranking third all-time in Houston school history with a 74.6 winning percentage. Pozzan also tallied a 48-21 overall doubles record in two seasons with the Cougars. She was named to the All C-USA Second Team in 2012 and to the C-USA Comissioner’s Honor Roll in 2011 and 2012. Before playing at Houston, Pozzan spent her first two years at Sam Houston State.

Pozzan graduated with a masters degree in sociology from the University of Houston. She is currently obtaining her Ph.D. in criminology at Florida State.
