That included a run to the first College Football Playoff championship game at the end of the 2014 season with Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota at quarterback.

Helfrich, who was sacked after Oregon's 4-8 finish in 2016, will be hired as the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, according to an ESPN report.

Helfrich was also reportedly offered the offensive coordinator position at UCLA by Chip Kelly-an especially enticing proposition for southern OR football fans given Chase Cota's commitment. How much of Fangio's staff remains with him is another question, but it's telling that the only three Bears coaches to leave for new jobs have been on offense. Now, he is expected to aid in the development of Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Charles London (running backs) and Harry Hiestand (offensive line) have also been hired by Nagy in the days following his introductory press conference at Halas Hall. Helfrich, who spent the 2017 season as a football analyst for Fox Sports, has a strong track record as a coach, and will look to prove himself at the professional level. He was granted a head-coaching interview with the Bears before the team picked Nagy. The Bears were 5-11 this past season and haven't finished above.500 since they let Lovie Smith go following a 10-6 finish in 2012, two years after their last visit to the playoffs. Nagy spent the past decade working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City, serving as the Chiefs' sole offensive coordinator this past season.

Hawkeyes rally from 20 down to win in overtime
Iowa made its first 17 free throws in the game; Bohannon and Garza had ideal nights, going 10-for-10 and 9-for-9, respectively. The Hawkeyes grabbed 17 offensive rebounds, leading to plenty of second-chance points - 18 to be exact.

Tabor will be making his second stint with the Bears after initially holding the title of assistant special teams coach from 2008-10.

The Browns ranked sixth in kickoff return average against (21.8), seventh in the National Football League in punt return average (9.9), ninth in total kick return yards (8,974) and 10th in total return yards allowed (7,627) since Tabor joined Cleveland in 2011.
