The former Manitoba Bison returns for his fourth season with the Lions’ staff and third as running backs coach. The 2023 season saw Taquan Mizzell record over 1,000 yards from scrimmage plus the development of Shaun Shivers and Jaquan Hardy who both earned stints on the active roster at various points of the season.

Dyce worked with the position group in 2022 when Butler finished with the most yards from scrimmage by any back and was second overall in rushing yards.

Dyce previously attended the University of Manitoba from 2014-19. As a receiver with the Bisons, Dyce recorded 119 receptions for 1,491 yards and eight touchdowns over 45 total appearances. Dyce ended his Bison career with a stellar performance in the Hardy Cup against Calgary, hauling in a 50-yard Hail Mary touchdown before their comeback attempt would come up just short.Prior to his U Sports career, he was a member of the CJFL Regina Thunder in 2013 where he earned Prairie Football Conference (PFC) Rookie of the Year and also helped the Thunder capture the Canadian Bowl with a convincing victory over the Vancouver Island Raiders.

Trysten is the son of long-time CFL coach Bob Dyce who worked with Rick Campbell in Ottawa from 2016-19 and was interim head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2015. He is a huge fan of the NFL’s Houston Texans and lists receiver Andrew Johnson as his all-time favourite pro.
