It's official, Trent Bray returns as GA

OREGON STATE ANNOUNCED this week that former Beaver Trent Bray has accepted the position of graduate assistant coach. He has spent the past two seasons at ASU as an assistant coach with the linebackers. The appointment of Bray, who will coach the linebackers at OSU, is contingent on his admission to graduate school.

While with the Sun Devils, Bray coached 2010 Pac-12 second team linebacker Vontaze Burfict and 2011 Pac-12 honorable mention linebacker Colin Parker.

Bray started 34 of 49 career games at OSU, including 33 straight, and in 2004 was the Insight Bowl Defensive MVP after making 10 tackles in the victory over Notre Dame. He was a Pac-10 first team selection as a senior and second team as a junior. For his career he made 337 tackles, currently sixth in the OSU record book.

Following his OSU career, Bray signed free agent contracts with the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans. He would later play for the Hamburg Sea Devils of the NFL Europe in 2007 and began his coaching career with the California Redwoods of the United Football League in 2009.

Bray is the son of Craig Bray, a former OSU assistant football coach.

"I'm very excited to have Trent rejoin the program; he's a great addition to our staff," Riley said. "When he played here (2002-05) I thought he would be a natural as a coach; we are fortunate to have someone of his caliber return to Corvallis."

Oregon State opens spring practice April 3 with the Spring Game scheduled for April 28.
