Chip Kelly‘s departure for the NFL led to Mark Helfrich‘s promotion from offensive coordinator to head coach. Not so surprisingly, Oregon has stayed in-house for Helfrich’s replacement as well.
The Ducks confirmed via a press release Thursday that Scott Frost has been promoted to the position of offensive coordinator. Frost has spent the past four seasons as UO’s wide receivers coach.
“Scott is a bright, passionate and talented young coach who we are excited to lead our offense,” Helfrich said. “His background on both sides of the ball, the coaches he’s been exposed to and his high character offer further foundations for his success. Surrounded by the continuity and support from the rest of our staff, we are confidently looking forward to this program’s continued success.”
Following a playing career that included a 24-2 record as Nebraska’s starting quarterback, the 38-year-old Frost served on coaching staffs at his alma mater, Kansas State and Northern Iowa before joining the Ducks.
Frost’s promotion comes a couple of days after Matt Lubick was hired as passing-game coordinator. Lubick, who comes to the Ducks from Duke, will assume Frost’s role as receivers coach as well.
