A source told CBSSports.com that Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton interviewed for the vacant coaching job for the Oregon Ducks on Friday. Former head coach Chip Kelly departed from the school for the Philadelphia Eagles head coaching job earlier this week.
Hamilton played a key role in developing Stanford’s offense this season, especially after losing four players to the NFL draft. Hamilton developed red shirt freshman Kevin Hogan after Andrew Luck moved on to the NFL. The 38-year-old OC also helped lead Stanford to its first Rose Bowl victory in 40 years.
Prior to joining the Stanford coaching staff in 2010, Hamilton worked on the coaching staff for the Chicago Bears (2007-2009), the San Francisco 49ers (2006) and the New York Jets (2003-2005).
