Dylan Riola Resume


I am a University of Texas at Austin alumnus after earning both my Bachelor's Degrees in History and Government as well as a Master's Degree in Sport Management from the amazing institution. While there, I was lucky enough to spend 5 and a half incredible years working with the football team, first as a student equipment manager and later as a graduate assistant. In addition to this, over the years
I was lucky enough to gain experience as a soccer coach with FC Barcelona's local youth academy, marketing intern with Challenger Sports and their brilliant British soccer camps, Zone manager for the 2019 NFL Draft, and market analyst for Austin FC in its very infant stages.
Clearly the sports world is very near and dear to me, and I have taken a particular interest to the business aspects of it that often elude the public eye. I have been fortunate in the opportunities I have received and can not wait for what lies ahead.
