Stein is the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at UTSA, which ranks ninth in total offense in the country this season.
EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon will hire University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) assistant Will Stein as its new offensive coordinator, according to multiple reports. Matt Zenitz of On3 was first to report the news. It was later confirmed by ESPN, the Oregonian and numerous other outlets.
Stein, 33, will replace Kenny Dillingham, the former Ducks offensive coordinator who left Oregon when he was hired as head coach at Arizona State. Stein will take over a dynamic Oregon offense that ranks fourth in yards per game (507.8) and ninth in points per game (39.7) this season heading into a Holiday Bowl appearance against North Carolina.
Promoted to co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach prior to the start of this season, Stein helped lead the UTSA offense to a No. 9 national ranking in total offense (486.1 yards per game). Under Stein’s direction, UTSA quarterback Frank Harris thrived this season, throwing for 3,865 yards and 31 touchdowns and rushing for 588 yards and nine touchdowns.
UTSA’s offense also ranks 12th in passing offense (308.6 yards per game), 12th in passing touchdowns (33) and 49th in rushing offense (177.5 yards per game) and are tied for 25th in rushing touchdowns (28).
The Roadrunners (11-2, 8-0) won the Conference USA title this season.
Stein has spent the past three seasons at UTSA. Prior to this season, when he served as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, he was the school’s passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach. A former college football player, he was a quarterback at Louisville from 2008 to 2012.
