Spack was a linebacker at Purdue. Tiller was the Boilermakers' defensive coordinator.

Spack and Tiller worked alongside one another for only a season but it was just the beginning of a close and successful friendship that spanned over two decades.

Following his playing days with the Gold and Black, Spack launched his coaching career as a graduate assistant for Tiller at Purdue from 1984-1985. Ten years later, Spack was hired as Tiller's defensive coordinator at Wyoming. 

Between Wyoming and Purdue, Spack served as Tiller's defensive coordinator from 1995-2008.

Since 2009, Spack has guided Illinois State's football program applying a lot of what he learned from Tiller to his Red Bird assistant coaches and players.
