His first head coaching position came in 2012 at Montana State University. In his first year MSU clinched a spot in the Big Sky Tournament, a first in the last seven years. During his three seasons there, he had two Big Sky All-Conference selections and the 2013 Freshman of the Year. He became an assistant coach at USC in 2015; the Trojans finished the year as Pac-12 Champions. After three years at USC Kyle relocated to accept the associate head coaching position at the University of New Mexico. In March of 2019 he began as the associate director of the Sunshine Volleyball Club. Since 2020 he has been head coach of two teams; in 2021 he coached the 17 Westside team to gold in the American Division at the Junior Nationals. This year he is coaching the 16 Westside and the 14 Elite teams.
Kyle’s coaching philosophy is based on the theory and practice of learning and how the process influences and is influenced by the learners. His approach is to accelerate the culture of volleyball by focusing on the skills the athletes need to become their very best.
He loves the analytics of volleyball; they provide the roadmap for success. Using the roadmap to coach the team is challenging and rewarding, seeing how close you can get your team to the “pot of gold” at the end of the map. Coaching gives him the opportunity to give back to the sport that gave him so much.
Off the court Kyle enjoys history and genealogy research. He also like cooking, watching movies, and listening to vinyl records.
