I've confirmed Oregon co-offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo will remain with the Ducks as OC and receive a three-year contract. Sports Illustrated first reported Arroyo's new deal. Arroyo had options after Willie Taggart's departure, so this is a good move for Ducks coach Mario Cristobal to keep him in Eugene.

"I'm excited and honored to be the head football coach of the Oregon Ducks," Cristobal said in a statement. "The rich tradition combined with the incredible wave of momentum that has been created throughout the season and the recruiting process is something we believe will be unstoppable, and this will lead us to fulfill the great expectations of our great university and our fan base."
