During the 2011-12 track & field season, Borozinski mentored Amanda Bingson to USTFCCCA All-American honors in the weight throw (indoor season) and hammer throw (outdoor) en route to a spot on the United States Olympic Team that participated in the 2012 London Games. Bingson had finished second overall at the US Olympic Trials in the hammer throw with a distance of 235-6 (71.78m), which was, at the time, a personal best.
Prior to the Olympics, Bingson finished seventh overall at the NCAA Indoor Championships to earn All-American status after she had previously set the program's weight throw record on two different occasions. During the outdoor campaign, she set an NCAA Preliminary meet record with a hammer throw measurement of (228-2/69.57m), which also equated to the eighth time she had broken the program record. She finished third overall at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
More recently, Borozinski guided MyShauna Alexander to first place in the javelin at the 2013 Mountain West Outdoor Championships, which were held in Las Vegas at Myron Partridge Stadium & Sheila Tarr-Smith Field. Alexander unleashed a throw of 151-10 (46.28m) to become the fourth Rebel to top honors in the javelin at a conference meet.
Prior to joining the UNLV track & field program, Borozinski spent the previous seven years as an assistant coach at Syracuse University where he coached six student-athletes to the NCAA Championship in eight different events. Three of those eight went on being named All-Americans. He mentored three BIG EAST Most Outstanding Field recipients and enjoyed 15 conference event champions. His student-athletes currently hold 10 school records in field events.
Borozinski is no stranger to the Silver State, as he is a 1995 graduate of Nevada, Reno, where he was the 1994 NCAA Division I national champion in the decathlon. He served as a graduate assistant coach at UNR from 1995-97 and as a volunteer assistant at UNLV from 1999-2002. He also worked as an assistant coach at Coronado High School directing the school's hurdlers and pole vaulters.
A 2004 inductee into UNR's Hall of Fame, Borozinski was the 1994 Big West Conference Male Track & Field Athlete of the Year.
After his collegiate career, Borozinski trained with Nike for two years under the guidance of Dave Rodda.
