• Ted Miller takes a look at all of the Pac-10 strength coaches and notes Jim Radcliffe's professional journey.
Radcliffe, after 25 years at Oregon, is the Pac-10's longest tenured strength and conditioning coach. He was a high school teacher before he started at Oregon in 1985. A graduate of Pacific in Forest Grove, Ore., he played four seasons at defensive back and was captain of the special teams. He earned his master’s in biomechanics from Oregon in 1992. He is certified by the United States Weightlifting Federation. He also has written books, been published in numerous professional journals and produced videos on plyometrics.
• Rob Moseley reports that the Ducks have added former Texas DB Marcus Davis.
The Ducks confirmed Wednesday that defensive back Marcus Davis has enrolled at Oregon for summer classes; he will redshirt during the 2010 season, as per NCAA transfer rules, and be eligible to play in 2011, when he would be a sophomore in eligibility.
Not sure this is the best move for Oregon. Davis was suspended last year after being arrested and charged with suspicion of driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance.
Hmmmm, sound like anyone you know?
