Oregon football: Scott Frost named Ducks offensive coordinator

USA TODAY Sports

The former Nebraska quarterback will take over at offensive coordinator for Mark Helfrich, who was promoted to head coach earlier in January.

The Oregon Ducks have promoted Scott Frost to offensive coordinator, according to a tweet from Anne Peterson of the Associated Press. He has been Oregon's wide receiver coach since 2009, and will take over for Mark Helfrich, who was promoted to head coach following the departure of Chip Kelly to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 38 year old Frost is credited for developing Oregon's wide receiving corps into one of the nation's best at down-field blocking.

Older readers will remember Frost best as the quarterback at Nebraska during the mid-90s. Frost won two national championships with the Cornhuskers, and went 24-2 while the starter in Lincoln. During his senior season in Lincoln in 1997, Frost became only the 10th player in college football history to both run and pass for over 1000 yards.

Following a six year NFL career, Frost served as a graduate assistant for Nebraska and Kansas State before becoming an assistant coach at Northern Iowa for two seasons.
