FreeAgentFootball.com (FAF) has announced the addition of 10-year NFL Super Bowl Champion Edwin Mulitalo to its 2018 FAF International Scouting Showcase (ISS) coaching ranks. The FAF ISS is taking place December 12-15 in Myrtle Beach, SC.
The Ravens took Mulitalo in the fourth round of the 1999 NFL draft, and the Arizona alumnus went on to start 102 games in Baltimore, including Super Bowl XXXV. A triceps injury in 2006 ended the guard’s tenure with the Ravens and led to Mulitalo’s release the following March, and he spent the final two seasons of his 10-year career with the Detroit Lions.
After retiring, Mulitalo served as the offensive line coach at Herriman High (Utah), spent 3½ years in American Samoa with his family as a teacher and rugby coach and worked as a volunteer coach at Big Sky Conference school Southern Utah.
Mulitalo arrived to coach at Southern Virginia University (SVU) in 2016, with then-coach Joe DuPaix as the Knights’ defensive line coach, and was promoted to defensive coordinator last year. In March 2018, Mulitalo was then named head coach.
"Coach Mulitalo is a great man and a great coach with strong relationships and universal respect of the players and coaching staff," school President Reed N. Wilcox said in a release. "We're confident that our Super Bowl champion head coach Mulitalo, with a fantastic assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in Danny DuPaix, will lead a seamless transition to take the team on to the next level."
His ability to connect with the student-athletes and his deep football knowledge make Mulitalo an ideal coach for this all-star scouting event. The FAF International Scouting Showcase is thrilled to have a coach Mulitalo's caliber and character coaching in its 2018 premiere event.
