Offensive Coordinator


Recruits: Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, Rhode Island 

Will Fleming is entering his first season as Valpo offensive coordinator in 2022 after serving on the Boston College coaching staff for the past two seasons, most recently as an assistant quarterbacks coach. Prior to his stint at BC, Fleming held the positions of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Rhode Island from 2014-2019.

In 2019, Fleming’s Rhode Island offense ranked 13th nationally in passing (3,555) and was one of two programs in FCS football to produce two players with over 1,000 receiving yards that season. In 2018, the Rams ranked 13th nationally in passing efficiency (151.72), 34th in red zone offense (0.846) and 37th in scoring offense (30.1 points per game). Under Fleming’s direction, Rhode Island’s quarterback set a program record for single-season completion percentage and earned second team all-conference honors.

Under his watch at Rhode Island, the Rams produced a trio of student-athletes who went on to compete in the National Football League – Aaron Parker (Carolina Panthers), Isaiah Coulter (Chicago Bears) and Kyle Murphy (New York Giants).

Against FCS competition (Virginia Tech, UConn, Ohio and Central Michigan), Fleming’s Rhode Island offense averaged 28.2 points per game, 406.7 yards per game and 303 passing yards per game.

Prior to his coaching days, Fleming started his collegiate playing career as a three-year letter winner at the University of Akron from 2008-2012. He earned his bachelor’s in sport management in 2013 after playing linebacker, tight end, full back and special teams during his time with the Zips. After Akron, Fleming graduate transferred to Towson for the 2013 season, but was injured during the preseason and transitioned into a graduate assistant coaching role. He was part of a team that made an FCS national championship game appearance.
