After his collegiate career, he became a finalist in the Blueberry Festival Open tournament in 2009 and 2010, won the Montgomery Clay Court Open tournament in 2010 in men’s open singles and doubles and was the finalist in mixed open doubles.

From 2008-2010, Ellis was the head teaching professional and tennis director at Dayton Center Courts in Dayton, Ohio. While he was there, he coordinated tennis programs for both adults and juniors, coaching eight top-seeded high school students who went on to qualify for the 2009 Ohio state championships.

Ellis also coached nationally ranked junior players, four- and five-star USTA players and NCAA Division I tennis players.

He currently serves as the teaching pastor of Grace Point Christian Ministries in Wintersville, Ohio, where he lives with his wife and four children.
