According to Eggers, the new hire has NFL experience as a player and coach.

Here's Perry's bio: Click me

Given that Riley was in Indiana last week (we thought for recruiting, but likely to meet with Perry) and loves former Rams, I think this is the best guess. We'll find out Monday.

If Perry is the guy, how do you feel about it? Personally, never liked the Colts secondary. Played very soft zone and a bend/don't break style for as long as I can remember. So, I'm not even convinced he's a great coach, never mind recruiter. It's just my initial reaction. But, to be fair, I don't know much about the guy, and it sounds as if he only played a bit part in the Colt's D schemes.

    PS. For those who missed the recruiting note: Brice is now a LaTech commit.

    Shelton retaking the SAT this late in the game screams NQ.

    Makes Wallace a huge priority. Things look 60/40 in favor of the Beavs with him…

      Perhaps he is retaking it to qualify for a National Merit Scholarship?

      I thought Wallace just said he was a “solid beav commit” 2 nights ago? What leads you to think it’s still 60/40?

        Probably just healthy Beav fan skepticism. When something is critical, Riley fucks it up.

        Wallace said Thurs. night that he has chosen OSU over Wash. and Boise..He will be a Beav.

        Well, 60/40 implies he’ll be a Beav. But, he’s always had an ear open, and loves Heyward, so I still don’t think it’s 100% solid. He’s waffled enough and said enough good things about Wa/BSU that I’m sure they’re still in the picture a little bit (20%) each.

          NO, he will be a Beav…Thurs. night via ESPN insider “I’ve eliminated both Washington and Boise St. as choices next year after visiting both campuses. It was very close between OSU and Wash., but I’m sticking with the Oregon State”.

    I don’t know much about the guy, but to have a career in the NFL, you have to know a little about your job. Especially if you maintain that job for multiple years. Gotta wonder how many years the guy wants to be a college coach though and would he really be down with traveling on recruiting trips during the off season?

      That’s a fair point…then again, Mike Riley had time in the NFL and he is wildly mediocre, doesn’t understand the subtle art of using time outs, challenge flags, or proper time management. Personally I feel any coach Riley brings on is simply another Yes Man who won’t shake things up.

    Unless something drastic changes, I gotta believe Wallace is w/ us. Otherwise, I mean really……what would be his point in announcing he’ll sign w/ the Beavs a few days ago if he wasn’t planning to?

    As a coach, Perry should do just fine. If he couldn’t coach, he wouldn’t have been able to stick around the NFL for 20+ years.

    Recruiting wise, that will probably his short coming. But maybe he can really sell the NFL aspect to the upper echelon recruits.

      He is 58 years old. This will be a major liability on the recruiting trail both from an energy to do it standpoint and connecting with 17 year olds. I was hoping we would hire a hungry up and comer, but I forgot who our head coach was. The crown prince of disappointment.

    One reason it could be Darren Perry.

    The announcement is supposed to be Monday. Darren Perry, and the rest of the Green Bay coaching staff, is in Hawaii for the pro-bowl, which is tomorrow. Perfect reason to delay the announcement until Monday. If it were ROD Perry, who is currently unemployed, there’s no reason to delay the announcement.

    Then again, I don’t see how this is a step forward for Darren Perry, so it’s probably Rod or somebody else entirely.

      It makes sense assuming that the contract stipulates that a younger guy with current experience in the NFL is a Defensive Coordinator in waiting, or Head Coach in waiting…but I’d hope for a much higher profile guy if that was the case.

    People seem mad about Perry. Well, it’s not like I know that’s the hire. Just speculating based on Riley visiting Indiana and Egger’s article.

    This guy fits the description, too.

      This one makes sense if you want a guy with California ties. At this point I’d prefer a young guy with NFL experience (currently employed) that wants to become a Coordinator or HC at the college level vs. An old washout Riley ass kisser.

      That new coach has really done a great job. Wasn’t it only a couple years ago when they hardly won any games and had almost the entire team quit? At 14-7 they have still have a shot at getting invited to a postseason tournament.

        yep, funny how probably the two best head coaching hires the athletic department has made in a very long time have both been guys from george fox university of all places. i heard they’re starting a football team in a year or so, maybe we’ll get that guy to replace riley.

        An example of the recency effect though? Oregon State did not have any players visit this weekend, the last chance to have visitors prior to signing day. At the same time, many of our rivals are having visitors, some of which are players previously committed to OSU like Chris Young. Arizona State got one last chance to blow the guy’s socks off while we just sit back and let it happen. I know we have some coaches on the road this weekend, but wouldn’t it make sense to have a few guys on campus too, in order to keep OSU fresh in their minds?

    Hey dummies. Look at Rod Perry’s bio before you spew all of this hatred. He didn’t just work for Riley in San Diego and then flounder his way from bad team to bad team. He played in 2 pro bowls with the Rams, and a super bowl–was part of an outstanding defense. He coached at Columbia, Fresno city college and Fresno STate (southern Cal ties). He coached a number of pro-bowl DB’s, and coached Panther and Colt teams that led or were close to the top in interceptions, fewest passing yards allowed, etc. For those complaining that Beaver CB’s “don’t look back at the ball”…Perry’s DB’s get a lot of INTs so you should be happy. How about educate yourselves before whining about the guy.
