LB Troy Dye back to Oregon for final season

Oregon is getting its leading tackler back for the 2019 season.

Junior linebacker Troy Dye, who posted 115 tackles last season en route to earning second-team all-Pac-12 honors, announced in a tweet Thursday that he would return to the Ducks for his senior year.

"I think I still have so much left to accomplish, and there is an opportunity to create something special in the year ahead," Dye wrote.

Along with his triple-digit tackles, Dye also posted two sacks and an interception for the 9-4 Ducks.

Dye had been listed as the No. 8 draft-eligible outside linebacker by ESPN's Todd McShay last month.
