Roy Lee was named the head coach of the Saint Louis University baseball program in 1960. In seven years, his Billikens built a record of 125–84–5. His teams won the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) regular season title in 1966 and the MVC Tournament championship in 1964–66, earning a place in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) playoffs. Lee's Billikens placed third in the 1965 College World Series.
In 1967, Lee departed the successful Division I program at St. Louis to start the new Division II program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE). With no scholarships and almost no budget, he quickly built a successful program. In his eleven years as the Cougars' head coach, his teams had a record of 237–144–3 and made eight successive appearances in the NCAA playoffs. Lee's Cougars advanced to the Division II College World Series three times and finished as the 1976 runners-up.
