The Oregon Ducks have reportedly announced that Dan Lanning is going to be the next head coach of the Oregon football program. Lanning is the University of Georgia’s defensive coordinator and has proven that he deserves a starting job with his performance this season. Georgia has arguably the best defense that college football has seen in the past decade so it’s fitting he got a head coaching job at an elite program.

Oregon is coming off an impressive season where they finished number 15 in the country and went 10-3 on the season. The Ducks are set to take on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Alamo Bowl. For most of the season, they were a top-five team in the country but suffered a disappointing loss late in the season to Utah, 38-7, which cause them to drop in the rankings.

Hiring Dan Lanning is a great choice from the Oregon athletic staff. He has proven that he can lead a team at the highest level and that’s exactly what he plans to do. Anything short of a national championship at Oregon would be considered a failure so Lanning is going to have to deliver one to the Ducks in his time there.
