The Associated Press is reporting something that those within the Oregon Football system already knew. Scott Frost who was previously Wide Receivers coach for former head coach Chip Kelly, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, has been promoted to Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach by current Oregon Head Coach Mark Helfrich. Frost and Helfrich have been visiting recruits the last few weeks as they prepare for National Signing Day on February 6th.
“Scott is a bright, passionate and talented young coach who we are excited to lead our offense,” Oregon Head Coach Mark Helfrich
One man does not win a team the National Championship and it is nice to see that Oregon has managed to keep their coaching staff together while adding an important piece in hiring Matt Lubick as Passing Game Coordinator and Wide Receivers Coach. Lubick is also one of the best teachers of the game and a top notch recruiter.
Frost played Quaterback at Nebraska leading the Huskers to a 13-0 record in 1997, he then played in the NFL for several years and was taken 67th in the 1998 NFL Draft. He did some travelling in his NFL career, from 1998-2004 he played for the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He then returned to coaching, first at his Alma Mater, then at Northern Iowa before landing at Oregon.
