Bio

Lyle joined the Chargers in 2013 after four seasons as the assistant strength and conditioning coach with the Cleveland Browns. He is a former NFL player with a Super Bowl title on his resume. Lyle played with Cleveland (1994-95), Baltimore (1996), the New York Jets (1997-01) and New England (2002-03), winning a championship with the Patriots in his final season. Certified as a strength and conditioning specialist by the National Strength and Conditioning Association in 2010, Lyle began coaching in 2006 as the assistant strength and conditioning coach and nutrition coordinator for the Jets.

Lyle was born in Monroe, La., and grew up in Kansas City, Mo. He was a football, track and wrestling standout at Hickman Mills (Mo.) High School, where he was a two-time state champion in the shot put. He also finished fifth in the state tournament as a heavyweight wrestler. Lyle went to the University of Missouri and starred along the Tigers’ defensive line, tallying 18 career sacks, including a team-leading eight during his senior season. He also competed in track and field at Missouri, earning All-America honors in the shot put. Lyle graduated from Missouri with a degree in parks, recreation and tourism, and he joined the Browns in 1994 as an undrafted college free agent, spending two years with the Browns before they moved to Baltimore in 1996 and became the Ravens.

Lyle and his wife, Laura, have two daughters, Haley and Audrey.
