Eugene, OR (Sports Network) - Mark Helfrich will be elevated from offensive coordinator to head coach at Oregon, according to multiple reports.
Helfrich has been the offensive coordinator for the Ducks since 2009, and this season Oregon averaged 49.6 points per game.
The 39-year-old Helfrich would replace Chip Kelly, who left Oregon this past week to become head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Register-Guard reports Helfrich was identified as the next coach of the Ducks when Kelly nearly took a job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January 2012. The newspaper reports wide receivers coach Scott Frost will be promoted to replace Helfrich as offensive coordinator.
Oregon, which made an appearance in the 2011 BCS title game under Kelly, finished last season at 12-1.
