John Snyder enters his fifth season in his second stint as an assistant coach with the Crusader football program in 2017. He currently serves as the team's special teams coordinator and also works with Valpo's running backs.

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

Prior to his tenure at Chesterton, Snyder spent one year as head coach at Paoli High School and three years as an assistant coach at Valparaiso High School. 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.

Snyder is a 1987 graduate of Iowa Wesleyan College with a bachelor's degree in physical education and health. He was a four-year letter winner 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.
