In 1990, Boulton was hired by Soccer USA and he moved to the United States where he later became the first full-time executive director and director of coaching for the Arkansas State Soccer Association.

At that time the Wildfire were the farm team for Major League Soccer's New England Revolution. The following year Boulton moved back south where he became the Mississippi Youth Soccer Association's statewide Director of Coaching. In March 2003 William Carey University (then College) hired Boulton as its men's soccer coach. He was named G.C.A.C. Coach of the Year in 2004 and his team won the G.C.A.C. Championship in 2007. The following year, 2008, he recorded his 50th collegiate career win as his team won the G.C.A.C regular season title and he was again named G.C.A.C. Coach of the Year.
