Former UGA player/coach named Oregon’s interim football coach

Former UGA football player Bryan McClendon is the interim head coach at Oregon.

That move came after Mario Cristobal left Oregon on Monday to become the new coach at Miami.

McClendon, 37, has served as Oregon’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach the past two seasons.

Ironically, it won’t be the first time that McClendon has served in the interim’s role. McClendon was a longtime assistant at his alma mater under Mark Richt, and when Richt was terminated in 2015, McClendon was in charge of the Bulldogs for the TaxSlayer Bowl, won by Georgia over Penn State.

McClendon’s next stop was at South Carolina, where his primary role was co-offensive coordinator for two seasons. Then-coach Will Muschamp relieved McClendon of his play calling duties after the 2019 season, and McClendon quickly found work at Oregon.
