Washington State assistant Dave Yost joins Oregon staff

Washington State inside receivers coach Dave Yost will serve as Oregon’s quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator.

Ducks head coach Mark Helfrich made the announcement Wednesday, according to the school. On Monday, citing a source, FOX Sports reported that Yost was expected to join the Oregon staff.

In Yost’s first two seasons coaching inside receivers in 2013 and 2014, the Cougars caught the most passes in Pac-12 single-season history twice. In 2015, Yost helped produce the nation’s No. 1 passing attack as the Cougars went to a 9-4 season.

Prior to coming to WSU, Yost had spent the previous 12 years at the University of Missouri. He began in 2001 as the quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator, and added the duties of offensive coordinator in 2009.

Oregon has shuffled its offensive staff with Matt Lubick being promoted to offensive coordinator and play caller in the wake of OC Scott Frost becoming the head coach at UCF.
