Donald Nathaniel "Donnie" Boyce (born September 2, 1973) is an American former professional basketball player who currently works as head coach for Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois. He played college basketball at the University of Colorado.
Boyce played high school at Proviso East in Maywood, Illinois, along with future NBA draft picks Michael Finley and Sherrell Ford. Boyce played collegiately at the University of Colorado, finishing his career in 1995 as the Buffaloes' all-time leading scorer (until Richard Roby surpassed him in 2008).
Boyce was selected with the 13th pick in the 2nd round of the 1995 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks for whom he played for parts of two seasons from 1996 to 1997, averaging 2.6 points in 30 total games.
Boyce began his coaching career in 2011 with his alma-mater, Proviso East. His team finished with a 32-1 record in 2011-12 and a 29-5 record in 2012-13, losing both times in the IHSA tournament to the Jabari Parker-led Simeon Wolverines (in the state title game in the former year, and the state semi-final in the latter.) 
Boyce was reinstated as Proviso East Head Coach at the beginning of March 2016.
