We present a set of one-loop integral coefficient relations in QCD. The unitarity method is useful for exposing one-loop amplitudes in terms of tree amplitudes. The coefficient relations are induced by tree-level BCJ amplitude relations. We provide examples for box, triangle, and bubble coefficients. These relations reduce the total number of independent coefficients needed to calculate one-loop QCD amplitudes.
