A 2010 graduate of Slippery Rock (Pa.) University with a degree in sport management, Lang spent the 2010-11 school year as the Coordinator of Marketing and Events for the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) in Newport News, Va., before working as the Events and Operations Intern at Harvard University the following academy year. Lang finished his master's degree in physical education - with a concentration in sport management - from Old Dominion University in December 2011.
Between July 2012 and October 2013, Lang worked at the University of Chicago as the Athletic Facilities Services Manager, overseeing two indoor facilities and managing four employees, prior to joining Assumption. Beyond his duties there, Lang was a member of the NCAA Division II National Women's Rowing Committee from 2014 to 2017, including spending 2016 as the East Region chair.
