LITTLE ROCK - The UALR Department of Athletics has announced two additions to its staff for the 2012-13 year. Brian Lyter joins the Trojans as Assistant Director of the Jack Stephens Center, and Tony Meyers as Assistant Athletic Trainer.

Lyter joins the department after spending the previous three years in various positions with the Arkansas Travelers. Lyter began his stint with the Travelers as a Stadium Operations Intern in March 2009 before being promoted to Director of Stadium Operations later that year. In his new role, Lyter hired, managed and conducted payroll for all game-day operations employees, and was responsible for the training and supervision of the team's operations interns. He received a second promotion in Oct. 2010, becoming an Account Executive in addition to managing all aspects of merchandise operations. In Jan. 2012, Lyter was named the team's Director of Food and Beverage, allowing him oversight and management of the team's concession stands and restaurant.

Additionally, Lyter has worked as a member of UALR's game-day operations staff for men's and women's basketball and volleyball games each of the past three seasons. He assisted in setup, tear down and execution for all athletic events at the Jack Stephens Center, in addition to preparing and delivering food for all arena suites during basketball games.

Lyter graduated from West Virginia University in Dec. 2008 with a bachelor's degree in Sports Management.  While at WVU, he served as an Event Management Intern for the Mountaineers' women's basketball team.

Meyers joins UALR after spending two years as a Graduate Assistant at ULM. Meyers worked closely with the ULM football and baseball teams in his time with the Warhawks, providing injury evaluation, rehabilitation and treatment with both teams.

Prior to ULM, Meyers obtained his bachelor's from Eastern Kentucky University, where he assisted with the Colonels' football and women's soccer teams. Additionally, Meyers did clinical rotations with athletics programs at Centre College, Lexington Catholic HS and Bryan Station HS.

Meyers has also served on the athletic training staffs at numerous camps and tournaments, including the 2011 Sun Belt Baseball Tournament, ULM Football Camp and the University of Kentucky Volleyball Camp.
