From October 2003 to May 2012, he worked for the University of Florida as the Men's Tennis Assistant Coach. During his 9 years at Florida, the Men's tennis program made the Final Four in 2005, won the SEC Tournament in 2005 and 2011 and finished 8 out of 9 years ranked in the top 10 nationally.
Prior to his 9 years with the University of Florida, Bayon coached in Starkville, Miss., where he was an assistant coach at Mississippi State for two seasons.
Bayon was a four-year letterman for Mississippi State from 1997-2000 where he played for Arkansas head coach Andy Jackson, who was the head men’s tennis coach for the Bulldogs for 13 years. Bayon was a member of four teams that made NCAA appearances, including one of Mississippi State’s school-best national semifinal showings in 1998.
During his four-year stint on the squad, Bayon compiled career records of 88-51 (63.3 percent) in singles and 82-49 (62.6 percent) in doubles, ranking him in fifth place on Mississippi State’s all-time list for total wins when combining singles and doubles play. He ranks eighth in singles and second in doubles overall.
More impressively, however, was Bayon's victory rate in team match situations for the Bulldogs. MSU's team captain in 1999 and 2000, he registered dual match records of 63-23 (73.3 percent) in singles and 57-32 (64.0 percent) in doubles. When combining those two marks, he is Mississippi State's all-time leader in dual match triumphs with 120 career wins in team competition. He is third in Mississippi State history in dual match singles wins and first in doubles.
Bayon held national rankings in both singles and doubles for much of his career, climbing as high as 43rd in the country in singles and sixth in doubles. He closed out his career in 2000, his senior campaign, with his best results, qualifying for the NCAA Singles Championship. He was also an NCAA Doubles Championship participant in 1998 with partner Simon Larose.
A native of St. Etienne, France, Bayon holds a bachelor of business and administration degree from Mississippi State.
In the summer of 2006, Bayon and Rhonda Faehn were married. The couple just moved to Indianapolis and have two sons, Noah Emile Bayon, who was born Jan. 8, 2008, and Isaiah Freedom Bayon, born Nov. 24, 2010.
