Hoyt helped guide the Penguins to a 21-13 record during the 2015-16 campaign and a spot in the semifinals of the WBI Tournament. In addition, Youngstown State had the third highest team GPA in NCAA Division I that season. Hoyt also coached at the NCAA Division II level during the 2014-15 season as an assistant at Northwood University in Midland.
