Marcus Knight

POSITION Assistant Coach

Marcus Knight joined the Valparaiso football staff prior to the 2008 season and coaches the wide receivers for the Crusaders.

In his first season with the Brown and Gold, he helped a redshirt freshman receiver garner Honorable Mention All-Pioneer Football League honors as a rookie.  One year later, he helped a youthful receiving corps improve considerably, using mainly sophomores, and in 2010 he again produced an Honorable Mention All-PFL performer.

Playing for the Oakland Raiders from 2000 to 2002, Knight was the starting kick returner for the team that faced Tampa Bay in Super Bowl XXXVII.  In 2002, he averaged 24.3 yards per return with a long of 65 yards for the Raiders.

He also played for the Amsterdam Admirals for one season in NFL Europe before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for one season. From 2005 to 2007, Knight played in the Arena Football League for both the Philadelphia Soul and the Columbus Destroyers.

In the spring of 2007, Knight served as the wide receivers coach for Grenada High School in California.

Knight played collegiately for the University of Michigan.  He was a member of the Wolverines national championship team in 1997 that played in the Rose Bowl.

While at Michigan, he earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors as a senior as voted upon by the media while leading the team in yards per catch (20.4) in 1999.  A four-year letterman, Knight started 23 career games and finished tied for 11th all-time at Michigan in career receiving yards (1,508) and 13th in career receptions (88).

Knight completed his bachelor’s degree with a focus on history, Afro-American studies, and psychology from Michigan in December of 2007.  He earned his master’s degree in sports administration at Valparaiso in 2010.
