Oregon promoted wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator Matt Lubick to offensive coordinator, the school announced Friday. 

Lubick takes over for Scott Frost, who was named UCF’s new head coach in early December. Lubick, 43, was a wide receivers coach at Duke before joining the Ducks in 2013. He began his coaching career in 1995 as a graduate assistant at Colorado State and has since been an assistant with several Pac-12 programs.

“Matt is extremely detail-oriented, he’s a very good recruiter and players really take to him,” head coach Mark Helfrich said in a press conference on Friday.

For the first time this season, Lubick will call plays on offense for the Ducks as they take on TCU in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday. Helfrich said they will address who will replace Lubick as wide receivers coach after the game.
