Report: Beavs RB Coach Michael Pitre Heading to NFL, Chicago Bears

Oregon State Beavers running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Michael Pitre is jumping to the professional ranks, according to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

Pitre joined Oregon State’s staff in 2018 when Jonathan Smith became head coach. Prior to his time with the Beavs, he coached at Montana State (RB coach, 2014-17) and Colorado (Grad Assistant for RB/OL, 2012-13).

Oregon State got some solid recruits while Pitre ran things, including 2021’s Damir Collins and studs Jermar Jefferson and Artavis Pierce.

The Oregonian’s Nick Daschel asked coach Smith if the coaching staff was set, the answer was a little veiled.

As tough as the news might be, it means the Beavers are doing something right.
