Tyson Silveus joined Valparaiso University’s football coaching staff in March of 2012 and will serve as the Crusaders’ defensive coordinator and secondary coach for the upcoming season.

Silveus arrived at Valpo from Northwood University where he spent time both as the offensive and defensive coordinator during his five seasons.  While working with the offense for three seasons, he was the team’s running backs coach.  He also worked with the linebackers on the defensive side of the football during his first two years at Northwood.

He also has previous collegiate coaching experience working at Gettysburg College for two years, spent one season at Wingate University, and three years at Manchester College.

Silveus was a member of Valparaiso’s football program in 1992 but saw his career cut short due to injury.  He transferred to Purdue University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1996.  He obtained his master’s degree in secondary school administration in 2001.
