Um Betters Defensive Line

By Compiled From Wire Services

The University of Montana defensive linemen will be drawing on some NFL experience this season.

Former Miami Dolphin Doug Betters is a restricted earnings coach who will be assisting defensive line coach Kraig Paulson.

Betters is a veteran of two Super Bowls and was the NFL’s defensive player of the year in 1983.

He played at Montana in the mid-1970s and transferred to the University of Nevada in Reno for his senior year. He was drafted in 1978 by Miami and spent his entire career there, where he earned allpro honors five times as a part of Miami’s “Killer B’s.”

Betters moved to Missoula last fall to enroll in UM to complete his secondary education degree. He wants to be a teacher and a coach.
