Patton then served as assistant coach for Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro for two seasons between 1988 and 1990. He obtained his M.A. degree in administration and supervision from Trevecca Nazarene College in 1989. In 1991, Patton assisted head coach Frankie Allen at Tennessee State University.

An avid golfer, Patton also earned a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwan Do.
