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 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.
