Formerly a coach at Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton from 2009 to 2013 (NCS MOC Champions 2012 and 2013), Coach Huff went on to coach at Texas State University in 2014, where he assisted the team's jumps and multi-event athletes. While at Texas State he coached NCAA All-American Allie Saunders in the long and triple jump, 7 NCAA Regional qualifiers, 4 Sun Belt Conference Champions and 22 All-Conference Athletes. Also, while at Texas State, Tyler coached world ranked post-collegiate pole vaulter (and future 2016 Rio Olympian) Logan Cunningham. Included in the collegiate group was Anicka Newell, who would also go on to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

At the end of the 2014 season, Tyler moved north to coach the sprints, hurdles and relays for the famed Baylor University Track and Field team under legendary Coach Clyde Hart, Head Coach Todd Harbour and Associate Coach Michael Ford. While at Baylor, Tyler earned a Master's of Science in Education with a focus in Sport Management. On the track, his athletes included 28 All Big XII Conference Athletes, 26 NCAA Regional Qualifiers and 8 NCAA Championship Qualifiers.


While coaching at Baylor, Tyler assisted collegiate and New Balance professional Trayvon Bromell to an NCAA Championship (indoor 200, 2015), a silver and bronze at the NCAA Outdoor Championships (100 and 200, 2015), a silver medal at the US Outdoor Championships (2015), an NCAA and Youth World Record (9.84, 100m, 2015), a bronze medal at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China (2015), an IAAF Indoor World Championship (60m, 2016), a silver medal at the US Olympic Trials (2016), and an Olympic Final in the 100m dash in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Trayvon equaled his personal best time of 9.84 at the Olympic Trials, that made him the 10th fastest person in history to ever run the 100m, and the 4th fastest American.
