John Snyder returns for his second stint as an assistant coach with the Valparaiso football program in 2013, responsible primarily for working with the running backs.  Snyder previously served as an assistant coach for the Crusaders from 1989 through 1991.

Snyder spent the last 18 years at Chesterton H.S., serving six years as an assistant coach before taking the reins as the program's head coach for the last 12 seasons.  During his tenure as head coach, the Trojans won 74 games, including three Duneland Athletic Conference titles.

Prior to his tenure at Chesterton H.S., Snyder spent one year as head coach at Paoli H.S. and three years as an assistant coach at Valparaiso H.S.  Snyder was a member of the Valparaiso University coaching staff prior to that from 1989 through 1991, serving as offensive coordinator and working with the wide receivers and punters.  He also spent time on the coaching staff at Iowa Wesleyan College and Winfield-Mt. Union (Iowa) H.S.

Snyder is a 1987 graduate of Iowa Wesleyan College with a bachelor's degree in physical education and health.  He was a four-year letterwinner on the gridiron at Iowa Wesleyan, where he played quarterback, wide receiver and punter.  Snyder went on to earn his master's of education from Valparaiso University in 1991.
