Tony Stubblefield has roamed the sidelines of Matthew Knight Arena for 11 seasons, coming to Eugene in 2010 with then-new head coach Dana Altman.
But after more than a decade with the Ducks, it appears Stubblefield is starting a new chapter of his coaching career.
According to Jeff Goodman of Stadium, Stubblefield is set to take over as head coach of the DePaul Blue Demons.
Stubblefield has been a coach in the college game for nearly 30 years but has never officially been a head coach. However, he was interim coach for a brief period at New Mexico State in 2005, going 2-12 with the Aggies.
Stubblefield came to Eugene after spending four seasons as Cinncinnati's recruiting coordinator. He brought that recruiting expertise to Oregon, helping the Ducks land some of the best recruiting classes in program history.
According to GoDucks.com, "During his tenure, Stubblefield helped Oregon assemble four recruiting classes that were ranked among the top 12 nationally (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)."
During his time, some of the all-time great Ducks suited up for Oregon, such as: Dillon Brooks, Jordan Bell, Chris Boucher, Tyler Dorsey, Joe Young, Payton Pritchard, Chris Duarte, Troy Brown Jr., Bol Bol, and many others.
Filling Coach Stubblefield's shoes will be no easy task for Coach Altman, but it's always great to see a Ducks assistant get a shot at running their own program.
