Oregon Offensive Coordinator Scott Frost departs for UCF

The Oregon Ducks are placing out the help wanted sign in order to replace offensive coordinator Scott Frost, who has taken the head coaching position at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

Frost has been on the Oregon staff, first as the wide receiver coach since 2009. He was promoted to offensive coordinator three years ago when his old boss Chip Kelly moved on to the NFL and Mark Helfrich was bumped up to the top spot.

While at Oregon, Frost was involved with teams that won a total of 78 games. The best player he coached was obviously Marcus Mariota the 2014 Heisman Trophy Winner.

Frost is a disciple of Kelly and the Ducks have been known for the uptempo pace that has blistered opponents, using a devastating run game along with efficient passing.

As of Tuesday, neither Frost nor Helfrich though the Associated Press quoted Frost as saying “UCF is an excellent opportunity for me because our student-athletes can succeed immediately, both competitively and academically.”

According to a spokesman for the University of Oregon Athletic Department, Helfrich will likely not be available for comment until this weekend.
