Coach Leach and former Mississippi State Head Coach Joe Moorhead almost switching places geographically between Starkville and the Great Northwest.
Today, Oregon announced it is hiring Coach Moorhead to be its next offensive coordinator following his two seasons at MSU.
Despite his early termination, Moorhead was just the second coach in school history to lead the program to bowl games in each of his first two seasons at Mississippi State.
He’ll be joining a Ducks team, fresh off their 12-win season capped off by victories in the Pac-12 championship game and the Rose Bowl.
Prior to MSU, Moorhead was twice named offensive coordinator of the year during his time at Penn State.
