Former head men's squash and tennis coach Al Molloy died of a heart attack last Friday. He was 72.

Molloy joined Penn's coaching staff in 1952, stepping down from tennis in 1985 and leaving squash in 1990.

While at Penn, Molloy compiled an overall record of 215-101 on the squash court, while his tennis players garnered a 219-138 record under his leadership.

During his Penn career, Molloy's squash teams landed four National Intercollegiate championships, also winning or sharing three Ivy League titles in those same years.

His tennis teams enjoyed similar success during his tenure, gathering a share of three Eastern Intercollegiate Tennis Association titles.

Molloy stayed on as a consultant to Penn's raquet sport program since 1990. The University named the renovated exhibition court in the Ringe Squash facility in his honor.
