Last season Dunford led the Tornado men to a 10-9 record, finishing fifth in the Conference Carolinas standings. On the women's side, the Tornado went 1-17, winning their first dual match since the 2016-17 season.
Both teams were selected International Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic Teams. The women had three All-Academic Scholar Athletes while the men had seven players honored.
Dunford's last day will be on December 18. A national search for Dunford's replacement will begin immediately.
