Lance Basler joined the LA Tech Family in April 2014 as the Director of Football Operations.
He came to Ruston after a three-year stint as the Director of Player Personnel at Middle Tennessee where he oversaw the football program's high school relations, recruiting logistics and communications, and team practice facilities while assisting with the football program's day-to-day operations.
As part of his recruiting responsibilities, Basler also oversaw all of the football program's web content on CoachStockstill.com as well as the Twitter and Facebook accounts of Coach Stockstill. Basler also oversaw the football program's "Stock Report Blog" posting practice reports, pictures, video and other content aimed at boosting visibility for the program.
The Boise, Idaho, native made his way to Murfreesboro from the University of Missouri, where he served as a football operations intern. Basler assisted with all matters pertaining to the daily operations of the football program. He also conducted an internal analysis to find competitive advantages and disadvantages in order to make strategic and budgetary recommendations as the program moved into the Southeastern Conference.
Prior to his time at Missouri, Basler served on the football operations staff at San Diego State University. While there, he assisted the Director of Football Operations with the coordination of team travel, game day logistics, and both official and unofficial recruiting visits. He was also instrumental in creating a budget for all offseason activities and helping to manage events such as team outings, pre-season practices, summer camps, and the Women's Football Academy.
Before joining the San Diego State staff, Basler earned a degree in business administration from the University of Washington in 2007. During his tenure at San Diego State, he also earned an MBA in Sports Business Management.
