The University of Oregon has hired former Arizona Cardinals defensive line coach, Ron Aiken, to replace outgoing coach Jerry Azzinaro.
Aiken brings with him a wealth of NFL experience, serving the past 6 years with the Arizona Cardinals organization coaching the defensive line. Before his time in the NFL, he coached at the University of Iowa for 8 years.
What does Ron say about coming to Eugene?
"This is a great opportunity for me to be at the University of Oregon and to assist with the continuation of the success they have enjoyed here," Aiken said. "Wherever I have coached, my goal has always been to do what I can to help win football games. I love teaching the fundamentals of the game as well as coming up with the schemes that will contribute to the development of young men."
