Akron hires Oregon offensive coordinator Moorhead as coach

AKRON (AP) Akron hired Oregon offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead as head coach on Saturday, bringing back a former assistant for the Zips to take over a struggling program.

Moorhead has been a head coach at Mississippi State (14-12 in two seasons) and FCS Fordham (38-13 in four seasons) and has been directing the Ducks' offense the last two seasons.

No. 10 Oregon's promising season came to disappointing end Friday night when the Ducks (10-3) were routed for the second time in three weeks by Utah. Moorhead's move also comes amid speculation that Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal is being pursued by his alma mater, Miami.
