Vanessa Steiner was named director of tennis in July 2016. She oversees both Duquesne men's and women's tennis programs.

Steiner came to the Bluff as a player in the fall of 2011 after graduating from Boston University with one year of eligibility remaining. In her only season as a Duke, she tied the program record with 36 total wins by a senior and was named Atlantic 10 First-Team All-Conference. The following two seasons, Steiner served as a graduate assistant.

In July 2014, Steiner was elevated to assistant coach on the women's side. In her first season, she helped the Dukes improve from seven wins to 12. This past season, Steiner guided Duquesne to a school-tying-record 16 wins, the finial nine while acting as head coach.

Steiner graduated from Boston University in 2011 with a degree in elementary education. She received her master's degree in English as a Second Language from Duquesne in 2013 and is currently working towards her doctorate of education in instructional technology and educational leadership.
