Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan, popularly known as the Bryan brothers, have mutually ended their coaching relationship with David Macpherson after working together for 11 years.

Bob, the younger of the twins, took to their official Facebook page to divulge that the split came on the back of Macpherson’s new assignment as the head coach of George Washington University.

“It comes with great difficulty in announcing that after 11 years our coaching relationship with David “Macca” Macpherson has come to an end. As tough as it is to part ways, it is also an exciting time for him as Macca has accepted the head coaching job at George Washington University. It is a great opportunity for Macca to continue coaching high level players and be able to enjoy more time at home with his family. Mike and I are extremely grateful for not only his loyal friendship, but for his tireless effort and dedication to our careers. Macca will always be part of our family and we look forward to many more memories off the court, wishing him continued success for the future,” Bob wrote.

Macpherson, 49, was a double-specialist himself, who went on to guide the Bryans to 15 (off their 16) Grand Slam men’s doubles titles, with the French Open title in 2003 being the only exception.

Meanwhile, the Bryans are currently in Cincinnati for the Western and Southern Open, where their second seeding has earned them a straight passage into the quarter-finals.
