PR staff among "Super 11" nationally recognized for servicing media during 2012 football season.

Sean Doerre is in his fifth year working at Baylor and his first as associate director of athletic communications. He serves as the secondary contact for football and the primary contact for cross country, men's tennis and track and field.

Last season, Doerre helped guide acting head football coach Jim Grobe through a year of transition, setting up interviews, producing weekly media notes packages and coordinating stat-keeping efforts. He oversaw production of Baylor's Cactus Bowl media guide and served as the primary contact during BU's bowl-winning trip to Arizona.

In late December, Doerre helped organize media efforts as Baylor welcomed new football coach Matt Rhule.

For his first four years at Baylor, Doerre served as an assistant director in the athletic communications office. In that role, he oversaw media relations efforts for the cross country teams, both tennis programs and the men's and women's track and field squads.

In his third year working with BU's football program, Doerre served as the primary media contact for Biletnikoff Award winning receiver Corey Coleman and unanimous All-American offensive lineman Spencer Drango. He accompanied both players to the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Atlanta in December. Meanwhile, he continued to produce weekly media game notes, coordinate other media interviews and helped with the media logistics of hosting ESPN's College GameDay show in Waco. On the field as the Bears returned to a bowl game for a sixth-straight year, Doerre helped produce the Russell Athletic Bowl media guide, while traveling with BU to Orlando for the game.

In 2014-15, Doerre helped lead the publicity effort as the football team moved in to McLane Stadium and the track and field program opened Clyde Hart Stadium on the Brazos River.

He served as the media host to ESPNU's "Road Trip" show as the Bears won a second-straight Big 12 title on the gridiron. Doerre coordinated all player interviews for BU as the football Bears rose to a program-high AP ranking of No. 2 and earned a trip to the Cotton Bowl. In the spring, Doerre led the media effort for NCAA champion sprinter Trayvon Bromell as he captured the national title in the indoor 200 meters. Meanwhile with BU's tennis teams, Doerre served as the media host for the 2015 Big 12 Championships. He also assisted as Baylor hosted the NCAA Tennis Championships for the first time and the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Championships. During the 2013-14 season, Doerr worked his first regular season as the secondary contact for Baylor's Big 12 champion football squad, coordinating player interviews, producing weekly notes packages and serving as the supervisor for BU's football statistical operations. He aided in the promotion of the department's initiatives to bid farewell to Floyd Casey Stadium and oversaw the creation of the 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Guide as the Bears played in their first ever BCS game. Doerre worked in the promotion of All-American offensive lineman Cyril Richardson, accompanying the future NFL Draft pick to the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Orlando, Fla., where he was a finalist for the Outland Trophy. In track and field, Doerre helped promote BU's historical high-performing men's and women's squads, while helping athletes Tiffani McReynolds (four-time Big 12 60-meter hurdle champion), Felix Obi (2014 NCAA Indoor triple jump champion) and Trayvon Bromell (2014 NCAA 100-meter champion) gain national media attention. He spent his spring working with Baylor's Big 12 champion men's and women's tennis teams as both squads swept the regular season and championship titles.

In his first year in Waco, Doerre oversaw the media relations efforts for Baylor's Big 12 champion soccer and tennis teams. He was promoted to secondary football contact in February, while helping Baylor's hosting of the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Championships in March. Doerre also served as communications coordinator for the 2013 Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships in May.

Prior to accepting the job at Baylor, Doerre interned for one year as a Will Hancock Communications Assistant with the Big 12 Conference. In that role, he handled the day-to-day communications efforts for equestrian, rowing, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis and wrestling. While working at the conference, Doerre helped implement initiatives to increase fan interaction across the league's social media platforms.

Before his time at the Big 12, Doerre spent three and half years as a student assistant in the Baylor Athletic Media Relations office. In his first stint in the BU athletic offices, Doerre was the primary contact for men's tennis and also helped with the sports of baseball, football, men's and women's basketball.

He graduated from Baylor in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and a minor in Film and Digital Media.

Prior to entering the media relations field, Doerre honed his writing skills as a sports-writing stringer with the Waco Tribune-Herald and Killeen Daily Herald. He served as the sustainability beat writer for the Baylor Lariat, while also writing for the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post.

Doerre is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).
