While everyone is talking about College Football Playoff and Poll rankings, November is also when the chatter heats up when talking about who will be coaching where next season.

One name that is starting to get some attention is second-year Oregon offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead.

The Ducks success over that past two seasons under Moorhead’s charge on offense could lead him to be in line for one of the open positions for 2020, according to CBS Sports analyst Brian Jones.

Before he came to Oregon, Moorhead was head coach at Mississippi State for two seasons.

“Maybe not in the South, because that was like oil and water — they didn’t mix — but a great offensive mind. … I think he gets another shot,” said Jones.

Moorhead led the Bulldogs to a 14-12 record over his two seasons, and was 6-7 in his final year in Starkville. He replaced Marcus Arroyo at Oregon who left for UNLV after the 2019 season, but prior to the MSU position, Moorhead served as the OC/QB coach at Penn State during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. During that time the Nittany Lions scored 30 or more points in 21 of their 26 games, and ranked third nationally over that time. Prior to his taking over, PSU ranked No. 100 nationally.

As the 2021 season starts to wind down, watch for the chatter to pick up. Who will be where is anybody’s guess.
