The midfielder took a long route to the AFL, starting his career at South Blackburn, before playing Under 19s and Reserves at Fitzroy. In 1988 he joined Carlton, before crossing to Mornington the next year. After one game he was recruited to VFA side Oakleigh and started to attract the notice of league clubs. Turning down an offer to captain/coach VFA side Camberwell in 1990 at just 22 years old, Dyson trained with Essendon during the pre-season but narrowly missed being picked by them in the Pre-Season Draft. He was recommended by both Essendon and Carlton to SANFL side North Adelaide but stayed with Oakleigh

Another season of strong performances in 1990, including best on ground in a state game, won him a spot in the Bombers' side for a against Melbourne. Dyson's performance impressed Melbourne, who swooped after the Bombers failed to pick Dyson with their opening selection of the 1991 Pre-Season Draft.

After a strong rookie season, playing 22 games in a finals year, Dyson struggle to 12 matches over the next two years, though he did play in the 1993 Reserves premiership. Back in favour in 1994 and 1995, Dyson opted to join Sydney in early 1996. The Swans had been offered two uncontracted players as part of league concessions for poor performance and offered Dyson a three year deal. He played in their losing Grand Final that season, appearing in 35 games with the Swans to the end of 1997 before retiring.
