His average of 9.73 tackles a game ranked him 28th in the nation, and he was an honorable mention All-Big Sky Conference selection.[4]

In 2013, Coyle had his finest college season with the Grizzles while starting at inside linebacker as a redshirt senior. Coyle led the Grizzlies with 125 total tackles, which put him among the nation's leaders.
