According to Oregon State beat writer Cliff Kirkpatrick, the Beavers football program is getting close to hiring former Indianapolis Colts assistant coach Rod Perry to be Oregon State’s new defensive backs coach, but may not be announced until later in the week.
Perry played his college ball for the Colorado Buffaloes and was a fourth-round selection by the then Los Angeles Rams. He played for them from 1975-82 before moving on to the Cleveland Browns from 1983-84.
He has some coaching experience in the Northwest already, coaching with the Seattle Seahawks from 1989-1991. He’s also coached with the L.A. Rams (1992-1994), Houston Oilers (1995-1996), the San Diego Chargers (1997-2001) alongside Mike Riley, the Carolina Panthers (2002-06) and of course the Colts (2008-2011).
