An earlier report about the Oregon Ducks’ interest in Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line coach Adrian Klemm has now been confirmed, with a report from Pete Thamel saying that the Ducks have hired him to be the new OL coach and assistant coach in Eugene.

According to Thamel, Klemm will also serve as the run game coordinator for the Ducks.

Klemm is a former offensive lineman himself, where he won three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots. He also has a lengthy list of experience as a coach, starting at SMU where he worked his way up from a graduate assistant into the O-line coach and run-game/recruiting coordinator. Klemm also coached at UCLA, where he served as the associate head coach and offensive line coach.

For the past three years, Klemm has been on staff with the Steelers.

We weren’t expecting this move to be made official until after the NFL season, which still has a few weeks left. However, Thamel reports that the Steelers are letting Klemm start at the new position today, so we can expect official word from Oregon soon.
