Recruits: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana (southern), Massachusetts, Connecticut

Yoni Offit joined the Valpo football coaching staff for the Fall 2021 season as a defensive quality control coach and transitioned to nickelbacks coach for the 2022 campaign.

In his second year on staff, Offit helped Valpo finished with a Pioneer Football League record of .500 or better for the third straight season, including the program’s first win at Morehead State since 2006 and first ever win at Marist.

The 2022 campaign also saw Valpo lead the PFL and rank sixth nationally in fourth-down defense, holding opponents to just 30 percent on fourth down. The program led the PFL and ranked eighth nationally in red-zone defense at .705. The team also ranked in the top five in the PFL in the following defensive categories – turnovers gained (16), sacks (2.25 per game, third), TFL (5.8 per game, fourth), rushing defense (151.5, fourth) and interceptions (10).

Offit was part of a Valpo coaching staff that led the team to its second straight season with a Pioneer Football League record of .500 or better during the Fall 2021 campaign. That marked the first time Valpo had achieved that feat in consecutive seasons since 1999 and 2000. The Beacons won four Pioneer Football League games in the same season for just the third time ever (2017 and Spring 2021) and four league games in any conference for just the third time since 1968.

Offit arrived at Valpo after graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in sports management in 2021.

Offit was an operations intern at Lafayette College in 2021 and held the position of recruiting intern at Syracuse from 2018-2021. He also served as a coaching assistant for the Massachusetts Pirates in 2019.

What They’re Saying About Coach Offit

Mike McCarthy, M2 Quarterback Academy Founder: “Coach Offit is one of the hardest working and most passionate young coaches I have been around. His thirst for knowledge and ability to adapt to any and all situations is what makes him stand out. There is no doubt in my mind Yoni will be a great addition to the Valpo coaching staff.”

Kort Shankweiler, Lafayette College Quarterbacks Coach: “Yoni does a tremendous job and takes a lot of pride in getting the details right. No task was too big or too small and he consistently delivered on whatever was asked of him. Valpo got a bright young coach who will work to make a positive impact on coaches and players.”
