Zach Greiner enters his third season on the Crusader coaching staff in 2017, this season serving as an outside linebackers coach. 

The University of Saint Francis alum served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, working with the offensive line, before accepting a position as assistant offensive line coach at Valparaiso High School 

Greiner started all 48 games at the University of Saint Francis throughout his four years. He was a mainstay on the team's offensive line, having logged time at left guard, left tackle and center. He led the Cougars to two Mid-States Football Association (MSFA) ME Conference Championships in his four seasons. Greiner was named a First Team All-MSFA center his senior year after earning Second Team honors his junior season at guard. 

During his prep years, Greiner also won a conference championship while at Valparaiso High School. The 2009 grad was an Indiana Football Coaches Association (IFCA) and Associated Press (AP) First Team All-State tackle.
