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."

Go Ducks!
