That’s exactly the decision Oregon State Football head coach Jonathan Smith made by hiring former Beaver linebacker Michael Doctor as Oregon State’s new Director of Recruiting.

“Easy to promote great people… Well deserved!”

Coming out of Booker T. Washington high school, Doctor was ranked as the 10th best prospect from the state of Oklahoma and No. 21 best outside linebacker in the class of 2009.

He committed to Oregon State on September 5, 2008.

Doctor’s five-year career (2010-2014) closed with 254 tackles, including 22.5 tackles-for-loss for the three-year starter.

Since his time as a player, Doctor previously served as a recruiting assistant for the Beavers and was then promoted to the team’s Director of On-Campus Recruiting in July 2019.

Now, Doctor has been promoted once again, and this time as the Director of Recruiting. 

Best wishes, Michael!
