Boise State Tenure (2010-Present)
Beck Roghaar enters his second season at the helm of the Boise State women's tennis program after being hired to lead the team at the start of the 2011 indoor season. Roghaar, who played for the men's tennis team from 2001-05, had served the previous season as an assistant coach for the men.
Roghaar wasted no time in putting his stamp on the women's program as he helped guide the Broncos to a Western Athletic Conference runner-up finish in his first season. Boise State concluded the year with a 17-8 mark, which broke the program record for most wins by a first year head coach.

Despite returning at the semester, Roghaar hit the ground running. He helped head coach Greg Patton lead the Broncos to the NCAA Championships behind a 19-12 overall record. Boise State finished the season with nine wins over nationally ranked opponents and a 4-2 record in WAC competition.
