"Brian is an outstanding addition to our staff, and he has done an unbelievable job in upgrading our computer programs and taking over several other duties," Davis said. "Brian brings a wide range of experience, and he plays close attention to detail."
In his first full season as director of operations, Burg was instrumental in assisting with overall facility improvements in the Lynn Davis Squad Room and the newly renovated Middle Tennessee practice facility. He also helped oversee academic progress, and the Blue Raiders enjoyed one of their highest collective team grade point average in 20 years.
