The new defensive coordinator of the Oregon Ducks is the old linebackers coach.
Don Pellum, former UO player and 23-year coaching veteran at UO, will succeed Nick Aliotti, who stepped down after the 2013 season and Alamo Bowl victory over Texas.
Pellum started at linebacker for the Ducks in 1984. He has coached various positions at Oregon, with early-career stints at Willamette and Cal.
According to the Ducks, Pellum will continue as coach of the inside and weak-side linebackers, as well.
