Wildcats Add Three New Coaches to the 2009 Football Staff

Weber State head football coach, RON McBRIDE, announced three new members of his football staff and a shuffling of assignments for those coaches returning for the 2009 season.

Taking over as the defensive line coach will be INOKE (E-no-key) BRECKTERFIELD. Former BYU quarterback JASON BECK takes over as the quarterbacks coach while former University of Utah and NFL star, ANDRE DYSON comes to coach the defensive cornerbacks.

A native of Honolulu, INOKE BRECKTERFIELD was an outstanding prep player at Damien Memorial High School. He played four seasons at Oregon State under Coach Mike Riley (his first tenure at OSU). In 1998, he was named First Team All-PAC 10 and Third Team All-American. He was the recipient of the prestigious MORRIS TROPHY, awarded annually to the PAC-10's top defensive lineman. He left OSU as the school’s career leader in tackles for loss with 55.5 and quarterback sacks with 19.5. He currently ranks second in both categories.

"Inoke was an outstanding linemen at Oregon State and in the Canadian Football League, so he knows what it takes to be success. He’s been helping at Oregon State for the past couple of years and prepared himself to become a full-time coach. He’s got a great personality and positive attitude. He will be a real key for us for our recruiting efforts especially in Hawai’i." said McBride.

Upon leaving Oregon State, he played two seasons with the Toronto Argonauts, and three seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Canadian Football League before returning to Oregon State. In 2007, he completed his bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Oregon State.

He and his wife, Carol, are the parents of a seven-year old son, Kalevi. Carol played soccer at USC from 1996-98 where she earned all-PAC 10 honors.
