John Palermo is currently the Defensive Line Coach for the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. Palermo makes his way to Murfreesboro, TN after spending two seasons as the defensive line coach of the Washington Redskins. A veteran of 36 years of coaching, including a decorated collegiate career that spanned 31 seasons, Palermo is back at the collegiate level where he has enjoyed tremendous success. In two years with the Redskins, Palermo's defensive line helped Washington rank fourth overall in yards allowed per game in 2008 and 10th in 2009. The unit was sixth in fewest points allowed in 2008 and ranked eighth overall in the league in sacks for 2009. Palermo coached Brian Orakpo in a dual role as linebacker and defensive end in 2009 and it led to a Pro Bowl appearance for the rookie.
