The morning after their 2021 football season officially came to an end, the Oregon Ducks made a flurry of reported coaching moves. One of the more intriguing hires is tight ends coach Drew Mehringer, who has spent the last several seasons with New Mexico, FAU, Texas, and Rutgers. Mehringer has spent time working with wide receivers and quarterbacks and was the offensive coordinator with Rutgers in 2016.
As is a common trend with recent Oregon coaching hires, Mehringer was named the Rivals National Recruiter of the Year in 2019, and he will bring a huge value to the offensive staff over the next several years where the Ducks already have a load of young talent at the TE position, with both Terrance Ferguson and Moliki Matavao getting great experience as freshmen.
