While he stayed in Eugene for nine years, Don Monson’s 44.4 percent win rate is one of the lowest in Oregon’s history. Winning an average of less than 13 games per season, the Ducks struggled to find any semblance of consistency under his guise.

His best season with Oregon was his first one and it was only downhill from there. Starting at 16-13 overall, not great by any means, Monson’s next eight seasons were losing ones.

The Ducks never made the NCAA Tournament with Monson as their head coach. They only qualified for three NITs under him and lost all but one postseason game.
