Doug Hoffman is in his 11th year as the Media Relations Director and 20th year with the Utah State athletics department as he joined the staff in December, 1998.
Hoffman, who was promoted to Associate Athletics Director in 2013 after serving as an Assistant Athletics Director for six years, spent eight years as the Associate Athletic Media Relations Director at Utah State.
As the Media Relations Director, Hoffman oversees the publicity of Utah State’s 16-sport program, working closely with the media, USU staff, coaches and student-athletes, while serving as the football and men’s golf contact.
Under Hoffman, USU’s Athletic Media Relations Office has twice (2011, 2015) been recognized by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) by earning its “Super 11” Award, which annually recognizes the best 11 media relations departments in the nation.
Along with his duties as Media Relations Director, Hoffman is also the chair of USU’s Athletics Hall of Fame Selection Committee and serves as the department’s curator, which included the research and development of USU’s Athletics Hall of Honor in 2009.

Hoffman, who graduated from Wyoming in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in communications, was an all-conference basketball player during his senior season at Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis, Wyo.
