Moorhead Finds a New Job in Oregon


EUGENE, OR (Ben Caxton) — Former Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead has been hired as Oregon’s new offensive coordinator. The 46-year old Moorhead replaces Marcus Arroyo who left Oregon to become the head coach at UNLV. Mississippi State dismissed Moorhead earlier this month after two seasons and hired Washington State coach Mike Leach to replace him. The Bulldogs went 6-7 this season, finishing with a loss to Louisville in the Music City Bowl. Moorhead was 14-12 in his tenure at Mississippi State and led his team to bowl berths both years. Oregon went 12-2 this season, capped by a Pac-12 championship win over Utah and a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. The Ducks were ranked number 5 in the final AP Top 25.
