2024 Speaker

Tad Boyle is in his 14th year as the head coach of the University of Colorado men’s basketball program with a record of 272-172 (.613). He is Colorado's all-time leader in men's basketball coaching wins and second in win percentage.

Entering his 18th overall season as a collegiate head coach, Boyle has won 58 percent of his games with a record of 328-238.

Boyle owns nine of Colorado’s 13 all-time seasons of 20-plus wins, including all five of the Buffaloes’ top single-season win totals. He has guided Colorado to 11 postseason appearances in 12 possible seasons; with no postseason in 2020 due to covid. Included in that span is a school-record seven-straight appearances from 2011 to 2017. Prior to that seven-year run, no Colorado team had participated in the postseason more than two consecutive years.

Five times, Boyle has led the Buffaloes to the NCAA Tournament, and a sixth was surely in the mix had it not been for the cancelation of the 2020 postseason. Boyle’s postseason success is highlighted by a memorable run of four wins in four days to claim the 2012 Pac-12 Tournament championship. He owns more than half of Colorado’s all-time conference tournament wins, with a 19-12 mark in that span (17-11 in the Pac-12, 2-1 in the Big 12). Boyle has led the Buffaloes to a pair of conference tournament championship games and six semifinals. Overall Boyle's 28 postseason wins and .549 winning percentage (28-23) are tops in Colorado history.

Boyle has led Colorado to 25 wins over ranked opponents, by far the best in team history. In fact, Boyle coached teams, with a record of 25-46, have accounted for 36 percent of the program's wins over ranked opponents (69) since 1949-50.
