Oregon dismisses head coach Mark Helfrich

Tuesday evening, the University of Oregon Athletic Department dismissed head football coach Mark Helfrich.

Helfrich was the quarterback coach at Boise State back in 1998-2000 under former head coach Dirk Koetter.

He coached the likes of Bart Hendricks where he won the Big West Conference Player of the Year twice.

The dismissal of Helfrich comes shortly after the loss to in-state rival, Oregon State. The Ducks lost their last regular season game of the season, 34-24 and finished with a 4-8 record.

He ended his Oregon coaching career at a 37-16 overall record, and lost their last two bowl games in the national championship against Ohio State in 2015, and against TCU in the Alamo Bowl last season.

Leash was extremely short after that Alamo Bowl loss.
