EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -Oregon has picked offensive coordinator Chip Kelly to be head coach Mike Bellotti's eventually successor, though school officials did not say when that will happen.
Bellotti will become the school's athletic director when he steps down. He said Tuesday he will coach the Ducks in their bowl game and continue to recruit.
Asked if he would step down after this season, Bellotti told reporters he didn't think so.
Bellotti is 115-55 in 14 seasons at Oregon and has taken the Ducks to 12 bowl games. The Ducks are 9-3 this season.
Kelly becomes the latest coach-in-waiting, a trend in major college football these days. Texas recent announced defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will eventually replace Mack Brown.
