Many of the Ducks are publicly campaigning for Cristobal to get the job.

Oregon's players seem to have their eyes set on one man for the Ducks' head coaching vacancy - assistant coach Mario Cristobal.

Several players have taken to Twitter to publicly campaign for the 47-year-old offensive coordinator.

They've been using the hashtag #cristoBALLIN.

Cristobal seems to be motivated.

Cristobal played collegiately at Miami and is in his first season on Oregon's staff. He was previously an assistant coach at Alabama. The Florida native was FIU's head coach from 2007-12.

Former Oregon head coach Willie Taggart left for Florida State earlier this week.
