Welcome to Coach Dan Lanning!
Dan Lanning was officially announced as the 35th head coach in Oregon football history on December 11, 2021, as athletic director Rob Mullens brought one of college football’s brightest young coaches and top defensive minds to Eugene to lead the Ducks.

“Dan is an outstanding, high-energy football coach who will provide a world-class experience for our football student-athletes,” Mullens said. “He is a tremendous recruiter and developer of talent, and we will continue to compete for championships while providing an environment where our football student-athletes can develop to their fullest potential in the classroom, on the football field, and as people. We are grateful for the opportunity to have Dan as the leader of our football program, and we look forward to the positive impact he will have on our student-athletes.”

In his first season as the Ducks’ head coach, Lanning led Oregon to a 10-3 record and a win over North Carolina in the SDCCU Holiday Bowl. Lanning became the third Oregon head coach to win 10 games in his first season, and the first since Mark Helfrich in 2013.

Lanning came to Oregon after spending the previous four seasons at Georgia, including the last three as defensive coordinator. He directed the top defense in the nation in his three seasons as defensive coordinator, and helped lead the Bulldogs to the 2022 national championship before taking over full-time as Oregon’s new head coach.

A two-time finalist for the Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant coach, Lanning joined Georgia in 2018 as outside linebackers coach before being promoted to defensive coordinator.

A Missouri native, Lanning began his collegiate coaching career as a graduate assistant at Pittsburgh in 2011, and also had stints at Arizona State (2012-13), Sam Houston State (2014), Alabama (2014), and Memphis (2016-17). He made is on-field collegiate coaching debut at Sam Houston State as the defensive backs coach.

As an assistant coach, Lanning has been to and won four of the New Year’s Six bowl games, including national titles with both Georgia in 2022 and Alabama in 2015. In four years with Lanning on staff, Georgia also won three SEC Eastern Division titles (2018-19, 2021) and reached back-to-back Allstate Sugar Bowls (2018-19), the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (2020), and the Capital One Orange Bowl (2021, CFP Semifinal).
