After receiving the Hot 25 award for his work as the UCI tennis coach, Greg Patton made the move to Boise, Idaho, in 1993, where he became coach at Boise State University. In 1997, Patton received a second National Coach of the Year award for his work at the university.
Patton has received many individual honors in recognition of his outstanding coaching abilities. He continued to coach at Boise State until 1998, when he decided to try his luck as a national coach, which he did until 2003.
During this time, he coached at the junior level, leading the National Boys’ 14s to the 2003 World Cup Championships, where they defeated teams from Argentina and Spain in the process.
Patton returned to Boise State to continue his collegiate coaching career in 2003. Since then, he has led the team to Western Athletic Conference titles in four of their six seasons.
