Eastern Michigan hires Heather Lyke as AD

YPSILANTI, Mich. — Eastern Michigan has hired Heather Lyke to be its athletic director and plans to pay her $245,000 plus incentives as part of a five-year contract.

The announcement was made today. She starts on July 22.

She was a senior associate athletic director at Ohio State, which hired her in 1998. The native of Canton, Ohio, has also worked at Cincinnati. She was a two-time captain on Michigan’s softball team and graduated in 1992. Lyke went on to earn a law degree at Akron.

Eastern Michigan had been looking for an AD since Derrick Gragg left in March to work for the University of Tulsa.
