Zarrugh named graduate assistant

Former Oregon State University student-athlete Ahmed Zarrugh (Zah-roo) has been named graduate assistant for administration for the football program, head coach Mike Riley announced Monday.

Zarrugh is currently finishing up his undergraduate work toward a degree in business administration. He had been serving as a volunteer student assistant for the last year after an injury ended his playing career.

"Ahmed has impressed me with his work ethic and he is a great fit for the position," Riley said.

Zarrugh is a 2003 graduate of Willamette High School in Eugene, where he lettered two years in football. He replaces Brian Smith, who left the program to become an assistant coach at another institution.
