Penn State Hoops Alum Myles Dread Named Penn State Athletics’ Coordinator For Student-Athlete Development & Enrichment

Penn State men’s basketball alum Myles Dread was named Penn State Athletics’ Coordinator for Student-Athlete Development and Enrichment Tuesday.

Dread and two others were hired by Athletics in an attempt to revamp the support of student-athletes to provide more “personal, athletic, and professional development.”

“This strategic reorganization will enable us to continue to evolve how we support student-athletes in their journey toward success in and out of athletics,” an Athletics release said.

In his role as the coordinator for student-athlete development and enrichment, Dread will “support community engagement and service initiatives, work alongside our student-athlete groups, and organize workshops and student-athlete-wide events.”

Penn State Athletics also hired Meighan Julbert as the assistant athletic director for student-athlete development and enrichment, and she’ll manage student-athlete social, personal, professional, cognitive, cultural, and athletic development. Braelyn Showell will serve as Penn State’s Big Ten diversity intern. In that position, she’ll support marketing and curriculum-building initiatives.

Dread owns the most games played in Penn State basketball program history (154) and the fifth-most three-pointers in program history (232). The combo guard played his final game in blue and white against Texas in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. Dread also works with the Big Ten Network to broadcast men’s basketball games.
