Report: Oregon Conducts Interview

Pep Hamilton has interviewed with Oregon.

CBS Sports Bruce Feldman has reported that Oregon's athletic director Rob Mullens has interviewed with Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton Friday afternoon for Oregon's head coaching position.

Hamilton is also considered to be the front-runner for the offensive coordinator position for the Indinapolis Colts. Earlier this week Hamilton interviewed with the New York Jets for their offensive coordinator position.

Hamilton arrived at Stanford in 2010 and coached the Cardinal's wide receivers. In 2011 he moved to the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Hamilton played a key role in the development of NFL rookie and first pick of the 2012 NFL Draft Andrew Luck.

DuckTerritory.com earlier Friday morning reported that Oregon hopes to have their head coach opening filled by Monday.

Hamilton, 38-years old, is African-American and would fulfill Oregon's state law requirement of interviewing a minority candidate.
