Assistant Football Coach Darryll Lewis Resigns

May 15, 2003


Darryll Lewis, an assistant football coach at Oregon State University, has submitted his resignation and left the team for personal reasons, according to OSU head football coach Mike Riley.

Lewis, who was hired in March, coached the Beavers' defensive backs.

'We will begin the search process immediately to identify a new assistant coach,' Riley said. 'We've got an outstanding number of student-athletes in the defensive backfield that make this an attractive position for prospective coaches. We would like to wish Darryll all the best.'

Lewis earned consensus All-America honors at the University of Arizona and was named the Jim Thorpe Award winner in 1990 as the nation's top defensive back. He went on to play for 10 years in the National Football League as a cornerback with the Houston Oilers (1991-96), the Tennessee Titans (1997-98), and the San Diego Chargers (1999-2000).
