Media Release

EUGENE - Michael Gray, who was a two-year starting defensive lineman at the University of Oregon before embarking on a 12-year coaching career in the professional and collegiate ranks, has been named the Ducks' defensive line coach according to an announcement Wednesday by head coach Mike Bellotti.

Gray comes to Oregon following two years as defensive line coach at Kentucky and replaces Steve Greatwood , who was shifted to coach Oregon's offensive line following four seasons on the defensive side of the ball.

"I am pleased and excited with the addition of Michael to our staff," Bellotti said. "He is a graduate of the University of Oregon and has coached in the Pac-10 as well as in the professional ranks. At each of his coaching stops, he has continually produced results on the field as a teacher and improved the performance of the defensive line in addition to proving to be an impressive recruiter. It's nice to add someone to our staff with Oregon ties who has been successful and truly wants to join our program and help us win."
