Oregon is hiring Cal's Tim DeRuyter as defensive coordinator, sources told ESPN.

DeRuyter, 58, has spent the past four seasons as a defensive coordinator at Cal, holding the primary role from 2017 to 2019 and then sharing duties with Peter Sirmon in 2020. He also served as Cal's associate head coach and worked with the Bears' outside linebackers. DeRuyter replaces Andy Avalos, who left Oregon after two seasons to become head coach at Boise State, his alma mater.

Football Scoop first reported DeRuyter's move to Oregon.
