Multiple media outlets around the country are reporting that Creighton coach Dana Altman has agreed to take over at Oregon.

Fox Sports was the first to report that Altman had been hired to replace Ernie Kent, who was dismissed in March after 13 seasons at his alma mater.

Altman has spent 16 seasons at Creighton, which is located in Omaha, Nebraska. He has a record of 327-176. He led the Bluejays to 11 consecutive 20-win seasons before they went 18-16 this year.

Altman also went 68-54 in four seasons as Kansas State’s head coach from 1990-94.

The 51-year-old Altman was selected after the Eugene, Oregon school couldn’t lure Tubby Smith of Minnesota or Mike Anderson of Missouri to take the job.

The Oregon Ducks went 16-16 overall, 7-11 in the Pacific 10 Conference this past season.

Mike Bellotti has been Oregon’s athletic director less than a year, but is leaving the school he loves to become a part of ESPN as a college football analyst. He was head football coach at Oregon for 14 seasons before taking over as AD last July. His resignation is effective April 5.

The 59-year old Bellotti took over as the successor to Pat Kilkenny and then Chip Kelly was promoted from offensive coordinator to head coach.

The football program is in a dissaray with quarterback Jeremiah Masoli being suspended for the 2010 season after pleading guilty to a second-degree burglary charge.

Running back LaMichael James, pleaded guilty to an unrelated harassment charge and was suspended by coach Chip Kelly last week for the season opener September 4.

During the 2009 season, running back LaGarrrette Blount punched a Boise State player after the opening game and was suspended for the season, but returned late in the season after meeting certain academic and behavorial requirements.

Mike Bellotti was quite successful as Oregon’s football coach. He went 116-55 with the Ducks and took the team to 12 bowls games. In 2001, Oregon won 11 games, including a 38-16
