Illinois State football head coach Brock Spack announced the hiring of Holden Boyle as the program’s new Director of Football Operations on Monday.

“Holden brings a wealth of experience to this role and came highly recommended to us. With everything going on and the uncertainty surrounding college athletics right now, it’s a comfort knowing we have someone in the role that knows the right decisions to make and is able to adapt quickly to changes. His experience at Arizona State as an undergrad and at Western Illinois the past three years has prepared him well for success in our program and we are excited to work with Holden planning for the 2020 season,” Spack said.

While at Arizona State, Boyle received two bachelor’s degrees in business management and sports business. He earned his master’s of sports management at Western Illinois in the spring of 2019.

Boyle joins Illinois State after spending three seasons with Western Illinois serving as the Director of Football Operations. Now at Illinois State University, Boyle will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the program.
