Ducks, Fans Mourn Passing of Oregon Coaching Legend Joe Schaffeld

(Eugene, OR) -- Oregon Ducks fans are mourning the death of a longtime coaching legend at the University of Oregon -- Joe Schaffeld -- who passed away this week.  Schaffeld was 85 when he died Monday.  Schaffeld played for the Ducks when the team played in the Rose Bowl in 1958.  He started his coaching career with Oregon in 1974 and spent 24 seasons as an assistant coach.  Schaffeld helped lead the Ducks back to Pasadena in 1994.  The Oregon football program memorialized Schaffeld with an award that's handed out each year to the team's top defensive lineman.  There's a room at the team's football complex that's named after him as well.
