Kyle Conley is entering his sixth season overall with Lake Erie men's basketball and his fifth as a full-time assistant coach. He joined the Storm staff in 2009 as the team’s graduate assistant and served as an assistant coach for three seasons before being elevated to Associate Head Coach in 2013.
He serves as the program's recruiting coordinator and his on-court responsibilities include working with the guards and wings. In addition to his game preparation - which includes opponent scouting, film editing and game-planning - gameday coaching and administrative duties, Conley also coordinates the Storm's series of successful on-campus summer camps and clinics.
Prior to coming to Lake Erie, Conley spent four seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, The University of Findlay. While there, he helped the Oilers to a four-year mark of 112-16, four NCAA Tournament appearances, three GLIAC South Division championships and a pair of GLIAC Tournament championships. The 2005 team reached the Elite Eight and finished the season ranked first in the final NABC Coaches’ Poll. In the 2006-07 season, Findlay went undefeated in league play. Conley was also on the Findlay staff for the 2007-08 season when the Oilers knocked off Division I Ohio State in an exhibition game on the Buckeyes’ home floor.
Conley also has three years of coaching experience at the high school level, working with the teams at Marion Harding and Elgin high schools.
Prior to earning his degree in business management from Findlay, Conley was a member of the basketball team at Tiffin University. He earned his master's degree in education from Lake Erie and is currently pursuing his MBA.
