COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
Boise State head coach Greg Patton was named the Mountain West Men's Tennis Coach of the Year, the conference announced Thursday.
Patton, now in his 16th year at the helm of the Broncos, guided 38th-ranked Boise State to the 2012 MW men's regular-season title, the Mountain West tournament championship, and its 15th overall NCAA tournament appearance.
