“From college athletics to authoring Lucky Enough” feat. K12 PR Professional Chris Yandle

April 9th, 2019

A native of South Louisiana, Chris Yandle is a recovering college athletics administrator and an award-winning public relations professional at both the K-12 and college level. After spending more than a decade with five different NCAA Division I college athletics programs, he transitioned to K-12 communications in his home state. Considered among the leading communications professionals in college athletics, Chris served as the Assistant Athletic Director for Communications at the University of Miami (2012-2014) and Georgia Tech (2014-2016). Prior to moving to Miami, he spent four years at Baylor University (2008-2012) where he was one of the leaders behind the successful Heisman Trophy campaign of quarterback Robert Griffin III in 2011, and was one of the key contributors to Baylor’s increased presence across social media platforms. He is the author of “Lucky Enough”, a book of handwritten notes to his daughter each day that became his #DadLunchNotes.

 

In this episode, Shane Haggerty talks to Chris about the book and the idea for the book, what his family thought of it and we also get into a conversation about the work he did at a very high level in college athletics.
