During the 2013-14 season, Doerre 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).
