Mike Bellotti played for and then coached alongside Hall of Fame coach Jim Sochor at California-Davis. This experience gave him a great background in offensive football. In 1989, he became the offensive coordinator at Oregon. In the previous 25 seasons, the Ducks only had five wining seasons. From there Mike Bellotti created a Hall of Fame career, turning the Ducks into a national powerhouse. Mike was named the Ducks head coach in 1995, becoming the first coach in school history to post a winning record in each of his first nine seasons. He took the Ducks to 12 bowl games in 14 seasons, including a win in the Fiesta Bowl following the 2001 season. The Fiesta Bowl victory gave Bellotti and the Ducks a single-season school-record 11 wins and a No. 2 national ranking. Nationally ranked in eight seasons, Bellotti’s Ducks claimed the Pac-10 championship in 2001 and a share of the conference title in 2000. He also served as the head coach at Chico State where he won conference Coach of the Year honors in 1986.
