EWU hires Valeria as cornerbacks coach

Filling a hole that had been vacant since the beginning of last season, Eastern Washington hired Cherokee Valeria as cornerbacks coach, the school announced Wednesday.

Valeria replaces Torey Hunter, who was hired by Idaho in August.

Valeria, a former college teammate of EWU head coach Beau Baldwin, coached defensive backs last season at Southeast Missouri State. He was also the team’s assistant recruiting coordinator.

Valeria and Baldwin were teammates at Central Washington in the 1990s, where Valeria coached cornerbacks in 2005-6 before taking the same position at Idaho State for three seasons.

Prior to working at Cal Poly, Valeria spent three seasons as cornerbacks coach at Idaho State under John Zamberlin, a former EWU assistant and former head coach at CWU.
