He remained in that position until March 2022 when he took his current position in Fayetteville. His goal is to continue helping collegiate athletic programs across the state. Tyler had this to say about his degree in Sport Management from UCA, β€œβ€¦it has helped benefit my career tremendously. I was able to finish my degree while working a full time job at SAU. This program also covered bases from multiple different areas in athletic departments and allowed me to get a feel for which aspect I wanted to focus on. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to further their career in athletics.” Congratulations to Tyler on his early career success. We look forward to hearing where his career will take him.
