Akron to hire Winston DeLattiboudere as D-Line coach

The Oregon Ducks are in the process of bringing a new offensive coordinator to Eugene alongside head coach Dan Lanning, but their old OC – Joe Moorhead – is creating another opening by reportedly hiring away graduate assistant Winston DeLattiboudere.

DeLattiboudere worked with the defensive line in his lone season with Oregon. He is now set to take over as the defensive line coach for the Zips, a nice promotion for a young man whose playing career just finished in 2019 with Minnesota.

While with the Golden Gophers, DeLattiboudere recorded 83 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, and five sacks across four seasons – while earning academic All-Big Ten honors as a senior and winning the Tony Dungy Award.

He spent one season as a graduate assistant at Charlotte before moving to Oregon, where he worked with an exceptional group of defensive linemen, including future first round pick Kayvon Thibodeaux as well as Brandon Dorlus, Bradyn Swinson, and Keyon Ware-Hudson.

Now, he’ll head to Akron to advance his career and reunite with Moorhead, while the Ducks have another hole to fill.
