Ducks promote from within

Oregon hired Mark Helfrich as coach Sunday. He replaces Chip Kelly, who was hired by the NFL's Eagles.

Helfrich is the third consecutive offensive coordinator at Oregon to be promoted to the top job, following Kelly and his predecessor, Mike Bellotti.

"Coaching at Oregon is the pinnacle for me," Helfrich said.

Helfrich, 39 succeeded Kelly as offensive coordinator in 2009. Before that, he was quarterbacks coach at Colorado from 2006-08.

FSU loses assistant: Greg Hudson resigned as Florida State's linebackers coach to become defensive coordinator at Purdue. Hudson, with the Seminoles for three seasons, joins the staff of new coach Darrell Hazell (the former Kent State coach).

Auburn QB out: Auburn quarterback Clint Moseley, who started eight games over the past two seasons, left the team. He cited an expected lack of playing time under new coach Gus Malzahn. Moseley has one season of eligibility remaining.
