Oregon has wasted no time in filling the vacancy left by former offensive coordinator Dan Reaves. The Ducks have finished filling out their coaching staff–again. Only two months after they made what they thought was the final addition to Willie Taggart’s new coaching, the team has hired a new co-offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo.
Arroyo comes with a wealth of experienced and will split play calling duties as well as coach the quarterbacks and tight ends.
Arroyo comes to Oregon from Oklahoma State, where he coached the OSU running backs to an increase of nearly 50 rushing yards per game in one season. His career also includes serving as the interim offensive coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Arroyo will be largely responsible from returning the Ducks to the kind of explosive production they enjoyed under head coach Chip Kelly. Willie Taggart is entering his first year as head coach of at a Power 5 program and has taken a meticulously long approach to filling out his staff.
We’ll see if it pays off in a bounce back year for the Oregon Ducks.
