Bobby Dye played basketball for the Hornets during the 56-57 and 57-8 seasons. He was a key component in leading the Hornets to the 1957 conference title. His name still holds strong in the FC record books as one of the leading all-time scorers (946 career points).

After graduating from Idaho State University in 1962, Dye began his successful coaching career. His first stop was St. John Bosco High School. After three years, he became an assistant at Cerritos College. Soon after, Dye became the head coach at Santa Monica College where he posted a six-year record of 115-50.

Dye took over the helm at Cal State Fullerton in 1973 guiding the Titans to a seven-year record of 110-77, and two Pacific Coast Athletic Association championships. In 1978 Bobby led the Titans to the PCAA title and advanced to the NCAA Division 1 final 8 for the National Championship before losing to the University of Arkansas. He ended his career at Cal State Fullerton as the most winning coach in school history.

Dye’s next coaching stop was at Cal State Bakersfield where he guided the Roadrunners to an impressive record of 50-11 (81.9 winning %).

From there, Bobby took on the head coaching job at Boise State University in 1983. Dye created a winning tradition with the Broncos averaging 18 wins a season, winning two Big Sky regular season championships, sending 6 teams to national post-season play, and becoming the most successful coach in Boise State history with an overall record of 213-133 in twelve years.

In 1996 Dye, along with a group of investors brought a CBA franchise to Boise, Idaho. As head coach and president, Bobby took the Idaho Stampede to the playoffs in its inaugural season.
