Oregon offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead missed the Ducks’ upset loss to Stanford Saturday because of an undisclosed non-COVID-related illness, and now he’s hospitalized in a Bay Area hospital following surgery, according to a report from the Oregonian’s John Canzano.

Moorhead underwent an undisclosed surgery Saturday after Oregon learned that Moorhead would be unavailable for its game against Stanford over the weekend. It’s currently unknown what is ailing Moorhead, with further reports expected in the days to come.

A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, Moorhead served as the offensive coordinator for Penn State in 2016-17 before taking the head coaching gig at Mississippi State. He went 14-12 in two seasons with the Bulldogs before being let go. He accepted the Oregon offensive coordinator position in January of 2020, helping the Ducks to the Pac-12 championship game last season and an early No. 3 ranking this season.
