Breckterfield, who spent last season coaching the defensive linemen at UCLA, was a third-team All-American defensive end at Oregon State when Chryst was the Beavers' offensive coordinator. Breckterfield finished his collegiate career as the Beavers' career leader in tackles for loss (55.5) and sacks (19.5). As a senior in 1998, he won the Pac-10's Morris Trophy Award as the top defensive lineman in the league—as voted by the offensive linemen in the conference. He began his coaching career at Oregon State in 2006.

Breckterfield, 33, played five seasons in the Canadian Football League and began his coaching career at Oregon State in 2006 as a volunteer assistant. He also was defensive line coach at Weber State in 2009 and Montana in 2010

"Our defensive linemen are going to really benefit from Inoke's experience as a player and coach," Chryst said in a statement. "Inoke was an outstanding player at Oregon State who went on to play in the Canadian Footall League. Personally and professionally, he is an outstanding addition to our staff."
