Moseley: Mark Helfrich to be announced as head coach, Scott Frost as offensive coordinator on Sunday

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

According to the Register-Guard's Rob Moseley, all the expected moves are going to be announced on Sunday.

The Register-Guard's Rob Moseley is reporting that players have been told that offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich will be named Oregon's new head football coach on Sunday. Helfrich, who was Oregon's offensive coordinator during Chip Kelly's entire tenure as head coach, has been rumored to be Kelly's eventual replacement for well over a year. Oregon had to interview a minority candidate to comply with the State of Oregon's "Rooney Rule," and interviewed former Stanford OC Pep Hamilton before he accepted the offensive coordinator position with the Indianapolis Colts.

Moseley is also reporting that players have been told that wide receivers coach Scott Frost will replace Helfrich as offensive coordinator. This has been a matter of much speculation since Kelly left, though there was never the widespread reporting that it was a done deal. It now appears imminent.

While Kelly did take defensive line coach Jerry Azzinarro, as well as several graduate assistants, with him to Philadelphia, Oregon has opted for continuity with this hire. DC Nick Aliotti, running backs coach Gary Campbell, linebackers coach Don Pellum, offensive line coach Steve Greatwood, and secondary coach John Neal all remain on staff.
