Jim Michalczik is the run game coordinator/offensive line coach for Oregon State and has been exceptional in his short time. The Beavers went from having an unproductive offensive line, but now this season they are probably the strength of the team. This weekend the Beavers play the Utah Utes which is another physical, running focused team (the opposite of WSU) and Oregon State’s offensive line will need to shine if they are going to walk out with a victory. I’ve said this before but hiring Jim Michalczik to coach the offensive line continues to pay dividends. Whatever Coach Michalczik is making he is probably due for a pay raise.
