He's been a teammate, player or business associate with some of the biggest names in sports: Peyton Manning, Tony Dungy, John Elway, Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger to name a few. Throughout Brad Pyatt’s football career he networked and learned from the best of the best. It started at Arvada West High School when he played under a brand-new high school coach named Dave Logan and the Wildcats won a state championship in 1997. The wide receiver was heavily recruited and opted for Kentucky under Hal Mumme where the “Air Raid” offense was popularized and eventually copied by many college and NFL teams. While Brad made receptions look easy at Kentucky, the game wasn’t easy on his body and he missed Colorado. He finished his college career with a year at UNC in Greeley where he soaked up knowledge from legendary head coach Kay Dalton.
Brad caught on with Indianapolis as an undrafted free agent in 2003 and stayed with the Colts for three seasons, again learning and watching some of the best players and coaches. Unfortunately, the injuries piled up in the NFL just like they did in college. After leaving the Colts, he played a couple seasons with Elway’s Colorado Crush Arena team and was done… with football.
After football, the business side of Brad took over and he started MusclePharm which grew to a $170 million a year business with big-name endorsers. A couple years before he left to start more business ventures, Brad became the head coach of his alma mater in 2014. When he interviewed for the job, he presented a 10-year plan to bring A-West
football back to what it was when he played. It’s working.
