Oregon DC Jim Leavitt makes snow angels at Autzen Stadium

New, comments

This man is fired up.

Jim Leavitt is still getting settled in with the Oregon Ducks, but he’s already one of the more colorful personalities in the program.

The Ducks’ new defensive coordinator is also a pretty good follow on Twitter. For example, he made a snow angel today at Autzen Stadium:

The former USF head coach joined the Oregon coaching staff from Colorado in mid-December.

Leavitt served as the original head coach at South Florida from 1997-2009, compiling a 95-57 record. He then went to the NFL where he served as linebackers coach for the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-2014 before returning to college as Colorado’s defensive coordinator for the past two seasons.

He’ll earn $1.15 million while trying to turn around perhaps the worst defense in Ducks history.

Leavitt definitely doesn’t lack in enthusiasm or creativity, and apparently snow angels are sort of a tradition for him.

Somebody get this man a Pepsi.
