Dana Altman took the head coaching job at Oregon, with uncertainty as to who would remain with the program. After the firing of former head coach Ernie Kent, Oregon finally settled with Altman after a lengthy coaching search.
After it appeared returning scorer, Malcolm Armstead would not be returning, the Ducks seemed in a tough situation.
However, reports have indicated that Armstead will indeed be returning to Oregon for his junior season. Armstead would have been the fifth Duck to transfer since the firing of Ernie Kent, but his return gives new head coach Dana Altman something to lean on heading into 2010-2011.
The 5-foot-10 guard had a terrific sophomore season last year despite Oregon's struggles. Armstead broke the single-season steal record this past year, as well as, leading the team in assists and scoring.
Oregon is certainly happy to have Armstead back, as he will most likely before the focal point in Dana Altman's first season in Eugene.
