NEW ORLEANS – Tyler Thompson has been appointed general manager for Tulane Sports Properties, as announced today by the university’s athletics multimedia rightsholder, LEARFIELD.

Thompson joined the TSP team last November as its Manager of Business Development after spending the past three years at Utah State as the Manager of Business Development for Aggie Sports Properties.

“I am beyond excited to return to my home state and work for such a prestigious institution like Tulane,” Thompson said. “I look forward to continuing the growth of the Green Wave brand and helping generate meaningful and lasting partnerships within the New Orleans community. I would like to thank Troy Dannen, Jana Woodson, Tulane Athletics and my LEARFIELD leadership team for allowing me this opportunity to continue growing in my career here at Tulane.”
