Carjay Lyles is entering his first year as a member of the University of Missouri Track & Field staff and will work with the sprints, hurdles, and horizontal jumps group. Lyles came to the Tigers from San Diego State University, where he assisted in developing the best team in program history, culminating in an eighth-place finish at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Named the 2013 West Region Assistant Coach of the Year, Lyles coached six NCAA All-American finishers during his four years with the Aztecs, including the 2013 NCAA triple jump champion, Shanieka Thomas. Thomas was also one of the four San Diego State School Record holders who excelled under Lyles' leadership.
Prior to his position at San Diego State University, Lyle worked as an Undergraduate Assistant Coach at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee (2007-2008), was an athlete and coach at the U.S. Olympic Training Center (2007-2009), and has been a private coach since 2004. Through these positions, Lyle has worked with multiple world-class coaches and athletes, including 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist Al Joyner, two Pan-American Games medalists, and two high school national record holders.
Lyles was an All-American triple jumper while at the University of Tennessee, helping the Vols to the 2007 SEC Championship title and three top-five NCAA finishes. He graduated in 2008 with a degree in Sociology. He is a USATF Certified Coach for the sprints, hurdles, and jumps.
