Former Oregon Duck Quarterback Nate Costa has tried a few things after leaving his Senior year in 2011. He became a Springfield Police Officer, then decided to go the route of being a member of the Sports Media in Portland. Now he has come full circle from his playing days and returned to the Ducks.
Oregon has hired him as a Graduate Assistant.
Dwight Jaynes from Comcast Sportsnet says the former Oregon Quarterback, who was hampered by injuries as a player will work with Quarterbacks, Receivers and other skill position players.
"“It’s been a long road to what I want to do. I loved the TV work, but I missed the competition factor. And I really like watching young players develop and improve. I’m so excited about this opportunity to get into coaching.”"
There are apparently some openings for Graduate assistants, according to the Register Guard, as former Coach Chip Kelly has hired several to fill roles with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Costa made the announcement to rejoin the Ducks during his Talkin Ball program on CSNNW on Wednesday night.
