Report: Oregon Expected To Fire Mark Helfrich

Mark Helfrich's days at Oregon are likely over.

Oregon is reportedly expected to fire head football coach Mark Helfrich, according to USA TODAY.

While a final decision reportedly hasn't been made, Ducks' officials are reportedly coming to terms with the firing and ready to begin a national coaching search.


Oregon has made preparations for a coaching search that will follow the eventual firing of Mark Helfrich, but the school has not officially pulled the trigger on the move as of late Saturday night, multiple people with knowledge of the process tell USA TODAY Sports.


Among those who will figure prominently in the search, according to people with knowledge of the situation, are Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck and Boise State coach Bryan Harsin, though others could be involved.

Helfrich went 37-16 in four years at Oregon, but the Ducks went 4-8 this season.
