Head football coach Dave Cecchini welcomed Kurt Mattix to the Crusader coaching staff in March of 2015.

Mattix, a 1999 Valparaiso University graduate, worked two seasons as a staff intern with the Michigan Wolverine football program. He joined Michigan after spending the previous two seasons (2009-10) as the tight ends coach at Ball State University. 

He accumulated 13 years of coaching experience prior to this arrival in Ann Arbor. Mattix was the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at St. Joseph's in 2008 and spent four seasons as the defensive coordinator at Wayne State (2004-07) before joining Parrish's staff in Muncie.

Mattix began his coaching career as an assistant at Portage High School (1998-99). He moved to the collegiate ranks as an assistant coach at Trine University (2000) and Anderson University (2001) before accepting a graduate assistant position at Ball State during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
