Chip Taylor

POSITION Assistant Coach

Chip Taylor returned to the Valparaiso coaching staff prior to the 2006 season for his second stint with the Brown and Gold after spending two seasons with the Crusaders in 2003 and 2004.  Prior to the start of the 2009 season, Taylor was named a co-offensive coordinator for the Crusaders.  He also works with Valpo quarterbacks on a daily basis and is in charge of the team’s strength and conditioning program.

Prior to 2009, Taylor was Valpo’s special teams coordinator and also coached the secondary.

During the summer of 2008, Taylor was selected for an internship with the Arizona Cardinals, where he was able to learn under wide receiver and special teams coaches during their preseason camp.  In 2009, he earned an internship with the Kansas City Chiefs during the preseason, working in a similar role with the quarterbacks coach.

As the special teams coordinator in 2008, Taylor’s unit blocked five kicks on the season and returned two punts for touchdowns.  He also tutored the secondary where the Crusaders led the Pioneer Football League with 17 interceptions.  Valpo’s defense also ranked 11th nationally in pass defense.

Valpo’s pass defense improved drastically under Taylor in 2007, allowing just 11 touchdowns through the air on the season.  The passing touchdown total was down from 17 a year before.

In addition, Taylor coordinated a kickoff return team that paved the way for a 1,000-yard returner on the season.  Crusader special teams also blocked six kicks in 2007.

In 2006, Taylor’s pass defense ranked second in the PFL.  Taylor also guided an All-PFL defensive back in his first season returning to the Brown and Gold’s sidelines.

Taylor served as an assistant coach at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 2005 where he was the wide receivers coach as well and video coordinator.  He also assisted with the kick return team.  The squad went 5-5 in his one season, and Taylor helped guide an Honorable Mention All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference wide receiver.

During his first stay at Valparaiso, during the 2003 and 2004 seasons, Taylor was the wide receivers coach for the Crusaders.  During the 2003 PFL championship season, Valpo’s trio of starting wide receivers amassed more than 3,000 yards and scored 30 touchdowns.  One of Taylor’s pupils, Rob Giancola, earned Second Team NCAA I-AA All-America honors after leading all levels of NCAA football with 23 touchdown receptions.

Taylor played at Illinois State University from 1998-2001 as a wide receiver and cornerback.  In 2001, he also served as the team’s starting punt returner.  A four-year letterwinner, Taylor was a member of the Gateway Conference championship team in 1999.

A native of Willingboro, N.J., Taylor graduated from Illinois State in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education.  He completed his master’s degree in sports administration at Valparaiso in 2005.  Chip and his wife, LaQuisha, have a son, Chris.
