The Chip Kelly-era at Oregon is over and changes are in store. While no one has any real evidence on who might be the next coach at Oregon, this is as good as time as any to speculate.
Names to consider, some realistic and some not so realistic:
: Just finished his fourth year as offensive coordinator for the Ducks. Prior to that was offensive coordinator at
. Helfrich has no head coaching experience but then neither did
prior to 2009.
: Has been the
headman since 2000 and has won 110 games as the Horned Frogs head coach. Interestingly during his 30-year coaching career he made a stop with the Oregon Lightning Bolts, of the old Professional Spring Football League.
: One of the most successful coaches in all of college football. Meyer has won national championship at
in 2008. Currently is the headman at
(since 2012). Was spotted in sitting next to Phil Knight, Oregon Alum and major donor during the 2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., on Jan. 3, 2013.

in 2008. Then during Kelly's first game as a head coach in 2009. Petersen has strong ties with the state of Oregon. While he has been at Boise State since 2001 (offensive coordinator 2001-05 and HC 2006-present) Petersen was at Portland State 1993-94 then at Oregon 1995-2000 as the wide receiver coach. His wife is from Eugene.
: Was the head coach at
for 10 years from 2002 until 2012. Was Oregon's offensive coordinator from 1998 until 2001.
No doubt more names serious or otherwise will be added as Oregon seeks a replacement for Chip Kelly.
