Offensive Assistant

Biography

Valero enters his fourth season as the Lions offensive coaching assistant after joining the staff during the 2010 offseason. In addition to opponent film breakdown and self scouting, he assists with coaching the team’s wide receivers unit.

Before coming to Detroit, Valero spent the previous two seasons with the coaching staff at Florida State. He served as an offensive student assistant in 2008 and then became the offensive graduate assistant for the 2009 season. Valero was set to be the Seminoles’ offensive quality control coach for 2010 before leaving for the NFL.

Valero got his first coaching experience with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2002-2003 seasons. While his primary responsibility was helping with special teams, he also assisted two futures head coaches – Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin and former Buccaneers Head Coach Raheem Morris – with the defensive backs throughout training camp.

  • #1 Pick

    Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht: "All options are on the table, in terms of trading the pick, taking the pick. Right now, we’d probably lean towards using the pick, but we’re going to let it play out here."
  • Almost 55 million in cap space

    Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio on team's salary cap options: "As you go into this phase of free agency and acquiring players, we have cap space and we have a new staff full of teachers. We have a young quarterback. We have a good, young man off the edge in Khalil Mack. We’ve got a good left tackle. We’ve got corners. The things that we need to get started, we have. So, now we have to start adding good, quality people that are fired up to be part of the Raiders."

    John Elway: “You really don’t know what those numbers are until you get to when the market opens and players get out there, and a lot of times players that have come this far want to go see what’s out there on the market and so we’re going to do the best we can to plan and to fill in with the players that we want to fill, keep the players that we have, but also we have to do what’s best for the Broncos.”
  • Drafting a QB at No. 2?

    club
    Head coach Ken Whisenhunt: “It’s a conundrum because if you don’t have the left tackle to protect the guy, or have the pass rusher to get your defense off the field, or have a lot of those things, sometimes it doesn’t matter what your quarterback can do. But it’s an important position. It’s one for us, that the Tennessee Titans make the right decision going forward. We have to do what we feel like is the best for us at the quarterback position. You weigh that against potentially what else is available."
