Devin Figaro finished his first season as the wide receivers coach at Valpo in 2019.

In his first year on staff, Figaro helped numerous wide receivers make clear strides over the course of the season. He guided juniors Ollie Reese and Deuce Larose to 2019 All-PFL Honorable Mention status.

Several Valpo wide receivers had career days on Nov. 9 vs. Morehead State as Larose made six catches for 112 yards, surpassing 100 yards for the first time in his career. Oscar Lopez hauled in nine grabs for 78 yards, both personal bests. Larose had Valpo’s highest single-game receiving total since Nov. 10, 2018, while Lopez was the first Valpo player with nine or more receptions in a game since Nov. 14, 2015. Larose finished the season with three straight games with 90 or more receiving yards. Larose (48.4, ninth) and Reese (45.4, 10th) both finish in the Top 10 in the PFL in receiving yards per game. Reese also finished sixth in all-purpose yards per game with 110.7.

Before making his way to Porter County in 2019, Figaro had been the wide receivers coach at Notre Dame College in Cleveland, Ohio since the spring of 2017.

Figaro coached two players to all-conference honors during his time at Notre Dame College. He previously served as a graduate assistant/assistant wide receivers coach at the University of San Diego and helped lead the Toreros to the first undefeated season in Pioneer Football League history. He was on staff as San Diego became the first non-scholarship FCS program to win an FCS playoff game in 2016.

Figaro played at Tulane University (2009-2011) and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (2011-2013). He was the captain of the wide receivers in 2013.

What They’re Saying About Coach Figaro

Dale Lindsey, San Diego Head Coach: “Devin is a hard worker and he came here and did a great job. We would love to have him here instead of at Valpo. He is a guy who is very deserving of a full-time job in our conference. He’s put in the time and he deserves this opportunity. I think Valpo has scored a really good coach and recruiter.”

Steve Irvin, UNLV Safeties Coach: “I believe Devin is one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the country. He has a tireless work ethic and will bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the program.”

Tanner Engtrand, Michigan Offensive Analyst: “Devin is a passionate and highly energized coach who brings out the best in his players on and off the field. He’s a relentless recruiter and a great addition to Coach Fox’s staff.”
