Ducks hire Defensive Line Coach
UO release – Tuioti is the second hiring of the day for Lanning, who earlier on Thursday named Demetrice Martin cornerbacks coach and defensive passing game coordinator. Lanning announced Kenny Dillingham as the Ducks’ new offensive coordinator and Matt Powledge as co-defensive coordinator last week. “I am thrilled to have Tony Tuioti joining us here at Oregon,” Lanning said. “He is one of the top defensive line coaches in the country, and he has a tremendous track record both in recruiting and player development. His experience coaching at the NFL and Power 5 levels will be a huge asset to our coaching staff, and his connection and familiarity with the West Coast, Hawaii, and the Pacific Islands is extremely valuable.” “Coach Tuioti is a terrific teacher, and I know our student-athletes are going to absolutely love working with him. Family is extremely important to him, and that really stood out during this process and made it clear he is a great fit for this program. I am honored to welcome Tony and his wife, Keala, their three daughters, Teisa, Teiyana, and Teinia, and their four sons, Teivis, Teilor, Teitum, and Teimana, to the Oregon family.” Tuioti comes to Oregon from Nebraska, where he spent the last three seasons as the Huskers’ defensive line coach. Tuioti has also coached at California (2017-18) and Hawaii (2000-01, 2010-15), and he worked as the director of player personnel at both Hawaii (2008-09) and Michigan (2016). Tuioti also has experience coaching in the NFL, spending two seasons as an assistant coach for the Cleveland Browns (2014-15), and he was a head coach early in his career at Kalaheo High School in Hawaii.
