Joe Moorhead reportedly will be Oregon offensive coordinator

Joe Moorhead

The Oregon Ducks were looking for a new offensive coordinator and appear to have landed a strong option.

Stadium’s Brett McMurphy reported on Tuesday that Joe Moorhead is expected to become the Ducks’ new offensive coordinator.

Moorhead was fired by Mississippi State earlier this month after just two seasons as their head coach. The 46-year-old was the offensive coordinator at Penn State for two seasons prior to taking the Mississippi State job, where he went 14-12.

The Ducks were in need of a new OC after Marcus Arroyo was hired to become the next UNLV head coach.

According to The Oregonian, Oregon also had interest in Jorge Munoz (LSU), Jedd Fisch (Rams), Will Hall (Tulane), Ken Dorsey (Buffalo Bills), Doug Nussmeier, and Ryan Gunderson (San Jose State).

Oregon is coming off a 12-2 season and Rose Bowl win in Mario Cristobal’s second year as head coach. Moorhead will be charged with building an offense without quarterback Justin Herbert, who just completed his senior season.
