Alex Land

Defensive Tackles Coach

Phone (219) 464-5513

Alex Land joined the Valpo football coaching staff for the Fall 2021 season as defensive tackles coach. 

Land arrived at Valpo after previously serving as the offensive quality control coach at UC Davis this past spring.

Prior to his time at UC Davis, Land served as the offensive line coach at Greensboro College (Fall 2020), the offensive line coach at Bonneville High School (August 2018 to June 2020) and a quality control coach on the Weber State University offensive staff (Fall 2015).

During his playing days, Land was the starting guard for the Cleveland Gladiators of the Arena Football League in 2017. He also started on the offensive line for the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles of the Indoor Football League for six games in 2017 prior to signing with the Gladiators.

A four-year letter winner at Weber State, Land played in all 46 games from 2011-2014 and started every game from 2012-2014. He was one of five offensive linemen to be selected to the Weber State All-Decade Team.

“I am very excited to join a great staff here at Valpo,” Land said. “I was impressed by the improvements this team has made in a short period of time and hope to contribute to more success. I am glad to be a part of this competitive team in a competitive league. So far, the players have worked their tails off and have a great attitude. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for this program.”
