Dunford has spent two years as the head men's and women's tennis coach at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Georgia. He was the first coach in the history of the program as they started tennis in 2016. The men's team went winless in their first year but came back to win six matches a season ago. On the women's side, Dunford led Brewton-Parker to three wins in their opening year.

Dunford's first head coaching job came at Thiel College, where he took over a startup program, and after only two wins in the inaugural season, the men's team posted a 14-5 record in his third season. In his lone year at the College of Wooster, Dunford led them to their first winning season in five years and their first conference victory in four years.

He then took the reins at Albion College where he improved both the men's and women's programs in two years. In his first season at Albion, the women won three matches but came back the following year to win 10 matches, finishing 10-7 in 2015-16.
