Vinny Giacalone enters his fourth season at Valparaiso in 2017, working as the offensive line coach as well as the program's recruiting coordinator.

Giacalone made an immediate impact with the Brown and Gold in his first season at Valpo, as the Crusaders' offensive offensive line led the nation in fewest sacks allowed per game (0.42) in 2014.

The 2008 Carnegie Mellon graduate was an assistant coach and co-recruiting coordinator at his alma mater for two seasons before making the transition to Lehigh in 2012. In his first year on the Mountain Hawk staff, Giacalone helped mold an offensive line in transition into one of the Patriot League’s top offensive line units. With four first-time starters in the mix, Lehigh led the Patriot League in passing offense and ranked fifth in the nation in fewest sacks allowed.
