Jeff Butorac

After graduating from Saint John's University, where he played collegiate tennis, Jeff pursued a career in coaching basketball. Over the years, he coached at: 

  • UW-Eau Claire (Men)

  • Saint John's University (Men) 

  • Burnsville High School (Boys Assistant Coach of the Year in MN in 2014) 

  • Southern Arkansas University (Women)

Eventually becoming the Head Boys Basketball Coach at Rochester Century High School.  During this time, he also served as a high school and college tennis coach for local tennis players.

While coaching Jeff received his Masters of Science in Kinesiology--with an emphasis in Coaching.

Jeff has also received his Goal Coach & Life Coach Certifications

During his second year of head coaching Jeff developed anxiety and panic attacks that forced him to step away from coaching. This was due to the stress that he put upon himself and the negative mindset he developed. 

Jeff has since dedicated his life to working with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them Silence their Inner Rival

"As a tennis player, Inner Rival helps me to get an edge by focusing on my mental game.  Working with Coach Jeff to set goals and learn different techniques has helped me to continue to improve".
- Keely, High school tennis player.


"Having my students learn more about their Inner Rival was really a special and rewarding treat. The information provided by Jeff was age appropriate and thought provoking.  My 8th graders were engaged and enthusiastic about hat they were learning.
- Burnsville High School Science Teacher
