Doyle Voted Director of Football Operations of the Year (December 2012)

Matt Doyle is in his 16th season with the Stanford program in 2015. He was recently promoted to Senior Associate Athletic Director/Director of Football Operations and Player Programs. Previously, he served as Associate Athletic Director and Director of Football Operations (2013-2015). From 2007-2013, Doyle was the Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Football Operations. Prior to 2007, Doyle worked in a dual role within recruiting and football operations. 

In his current role, Doyle oversees the day-to-day operations of the football program while serving as a liaison to several groups in the athletics and university community. With the recent retirement of Ron Lynn, Doyle will work closely with the academic support services as well as return to his role as pro liaison working with NFL scouts and player agents. 

Doyle is very involved in athletic administration on a national level as he currently serves on the Rose Bowl Game Advisory Committee and the newly-formed College Football Playoff Advisory Committee. After serving as of the AFCA Football Operations National Committee, he assumed the role of president in 2015. In December, 2012, Doyle was the recipient of the Football Operations Director of the Year, an award that is nominated for and voted on by his peers.

His broad range of responsibilities includes the overall management of the football budget, team travel, bowl game coordination, and the David Shaw Football Camps and Clinics. He also plays a key role in fundraising and outreach for the program as he coordinates football alumni communications and fundraising. Doyle played an integral role in the 2013 remodel and extension of the new 30,000 square foot football wing in the Arrillaga Family Sports Center, including the coordination of fundraising efforts of former Stanford football players. In 2015 he was instrumental in the design of the Stanford Stadium Fieldhouse, set to open at Stanford Stadium in September. The new facility will feature state of the art locker rooms for the home and visitors, new training rooms for both teams, an x-ray center, a new official’s locker room and a multi-purpose space for the large events. 

Doyle also works closely with members of the campus community including the faculty, housing and dining, the dean’s office and academic advising. Other duties include game day management, community outreach, the coordination and planning of team events related to the football program, including pro timing day, the annual team awards banquet and special projects.

Since its founding in 2011, Doyle has served on the Board of Directors for FitKids, a local non-profit organization that provides after-school fitness programs and promotes a healthy lifestyle in underserved communities.

Prior to coming to The Farm, Doyle taught world history, U.S. government and journalism at his alma mater, Saint Francis High School, in nearby Mountain View. Doyle earned his bachelor’s degree in history from UC Davis in 1998, where he played outfield on the baseball team. Doyle has a master’s degree in sport management from the University of San Francisco.

Doyle and his wife, Hillary, reside in Redwood City. The couple has a daughter, Catherine, and a son, Matthew.
