Maitre Yves Auriol earned his fencing master's degree from the Institute National du Sport in Paris. Colleen Olney urged him to move to Portland where he formed the Salle Auriol Fencing Club, and was fencing coach at Portland State University from 1975 until 1985.

 

There, Auriol created great fencers in his Salle including Michael and Robert Marx, Debbie Waples, Dan Miller, Sue Badders, Pierre Des Georges, Wayne Johnson, Evan Ranes and Pat Gerard. Maitre Auriol had the distinction of coaching the first women's national champion in epee, Susan Badders. He was hired by Notre Dame in 1985 and over the course of 17 seasons, Notre Dame fencers combined to win 54 All-America honors (six national champions), plus five Academic All-America citations as well as NCAA Coach of the Year.

Coach Auriol was honored with the national Fencing Coach of the Year award from the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association in 2002. A four-time Olympic coach, Maitre Auriol served as a coach for the 1992 U.S. Olympic squad in Barcelona. He also served as coach for the U.S. Olympic teams in 1980, '84 and '88. Maitre Auriol moved to Las Vegas in 2003 and in 2005, he helped found the Fencing Academy of Nevada. The Fencing Academy of Nevada's men's epee team (Evan Ranes, Nicolae Diaconescu and Kian Ameli) recently won the 2006 Pacific Coast Championship and produced 3 new USFA National Champions: Kian Ameli (Y14 Epee, Cadet Epee), Nik Nik Ameli (Y12 Epee) and Evan Ranes (Veteran 40-49) at the 2006 Nationals in Atlanta.
