With a wealth of knowledge in video technology after years of experience in professional basketball, as well as his immeasurable enthusiasm for the sport, Tyler Cleverly is one of the top video coordinators in all of college basketball. The Seminoles won 98 games in the first four seasons after Cleverly joined the program - the most wins in a four-year span in program history.
Now in his sixth year with the Seminoles, Cleverly is responsible for the entire film breakdown for both Florida State and its opponents. Through his work with the XOS video editing software, coaches and players are able to review games and practices almost immediately after their conclusion. He also oversees the multi-million dollar video room and assists in running Florida State's team camps.
Before coming to Florida State, Cleverly worked as a video intern for both the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever. With both organizations he provided breakdowns of teams' games for coaches, players and scouts as well as opponent video for the use in scouting reports.
In addition, he compiled statistical information and wrote personnel reports on opponents. To go along with his video acumen, Cleverly has hands-on experience from the coach's vantage point having coached two years while working on his undergrad and graduate degrees.
Cleverly earned both of his degrees from Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. He graduated in May of 2006 with a bachelor's degree in sport administration with a minor in foundations of management. A year later he received his master's degree in physical education with an emphasis on sport administration. In addition to his work with the Ball State athletic department and sport administration programs he worked the 2004 Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament.
A native of Auburn, Indiana, Cleverly graduated from DeKalb High School in 2000. He is married to the former Courtney Oliver, who is a registered nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare. The Cleverlys are the parents of two sons; Dawson and Cooper.
