Frank Young spent seven years on the Idaho boxing coaching staff, including six as the head coach. Young led the Vandals to the 1950 NCAA championship, and during his tenure had four of his athletes win a combined seven individual national titles.
Following the discontinuation of boxing at Idaho in 1954, Young was an associate athletic director and the executive secretary of Vandal Boosters until 1960. He then served as director of admissions for 17 years in Moscow. The team championships, individual accolades and recognition from his time leading Vandal boxing set Frank Young apart in Idaho Athletics history. His 30 years as a coach, professor, administrator and leader set him in a category all his own at the University of Idaho.
