Oregon has fired coach Mark Helfrich after a disappointing 4-8 season, and just two years after getting the Ducks within a victory of the programs first national championship.Helfrich was head coach of the Ducks for four seasons, leading the team to the first College Football Playoff championship game after the 2014 season. But Oregon faltered this year with a five-game losing streak, and finished at the bottom of the Pac-12 North with just two conference wins.After taking over when Chip Kelly left in 2013, Helfrich went 37-16. He had an $11.6 million buyout on his contract with the Ducks.Helfrich met with athletic director Rob Mullens on Tuesday night and was told was being dismissed. Helfrich issued a statement saying he was honored to have served at Oregon.It is with respect and disappointment that we receive this decision, Helfrich said. Plain and simple -- we didnt win enough games this season.At a news conference following the announcement, Mullens said that Oregon will look outside the program for candidates, and the new coach will make decisions about the current staff. There is no timeline for a decision, but recruiting adds urgency to the process.Mullens said he informed the players of his decision earlier in the evening.It was difficult, he said. Players were upset because they lost a family member.Ducks started this season ranked No. 24 in the preseason AP Top 25, but lost 35-32 at Nebraska in the third week of the season, starting the teams longest losing streak since 1996.The Ducks had a brief revival with a 30-28 victory over then-No. 11 Utah in Salt Lake City two weeks ago, but they ended the season with a 34-24 loss to rival Oregon State in the 120th Civil War game this past Saturday. The loss snapped an eight-game Oregon winning streak in the series.Afterward, Helfrich was asked about job security.Nobodys job is safe in college football, he said. Thats just the nature of the beast.Fan discontentment with Helfrich grew as the season dragged on and wins were scarce. Some questioned the wisdom of new assistant Brady Hokes new defensive scheme, or the reliance on graduate transfers at quarterback for the past two seasons rather than long-term player development.Didnt win enough games. I mean, thats blunt. But thats the fact. We have to own that part of it. And own the solution, Helfrich said following the loss to the Beavers.Whatever the reason, Oregons slide was a reminder of how hard it is to get good. And stay good.When Helfrich was promoted into the job at the start of 2013, he had the daunting task of replacing Kelly, who orchestrated Oregons hyperdrive spread-option offense and led the Ducks to their first national championship game appearance in 2010. An affable native Oregonian, Helfrich had served as offensive coordinator under Kelly and recruited future Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota.Helfrich went 24-4 in his first two seasons, including a loss to Ohio State in the first College Football Playoff championship. But last year he was challenged with replacing Mariota. He lured graduate transfer Vernon Adams from Eastern Washington, but Adams struggled with injury.The cracks were showing in that 9-4 season, the first with fewer than 10 wins since 2007. Losses to Michigan State, then at home to Utah and Washington State pushed Oregon out of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2009.The ultimate embarrassment came in the Alamo Bowl, when the Ducks surrendered a 31-0 lead and TCU staged the biggest comeback in bowl history to win 47-41 in triple overtime.This season the Ducks brought in another graduate transfer at quarterback, Dakota Prukop from Montana State. But after five starts, Prukop was benched in favor of true freshman Justin Herbert.Herbert was one of the few bright spots in the dismal season, throwing for 1,936 yards and19 touchdowns with four interceptions in nine appearances.The overwhelming drag on Oregons success appeared to be the defense. The Ducks, who switched to a 4-3 scheme under Hoke, spent most of the season mired in the bottom of the NCAA defensive rankings. At times it appeared that the players didnt know their assignments.The defensive shortcomings were readily apparent in Oregons 70-21 loss at home to No. 5 Washington on Oct. 8. Huskies quarterback Jake Browning threw for six touchdowns in the victory, which snapped a 12-game losing streak to the rival Ducks.The issues on defense were again on display Saturday against the Beavers. The Ducks season ended without a bowl game for the first time since 2004. Oregon had finished every season ranked in the AP Top 25 since 2007.Mullens said he waited until Tuesday to put some distance between the emotions of the final loss.No one wanted Mark to be more successful than me, Mullens said. We were not competing in a number of games and we were on a poor trajectory.In the statement Tuesday night, Helfrich thanked his wife and family, the campus community, the fans, and his coaches and their families.Finally, to the players -- thank you, and I love you, he said.

MOSCOW -- The International Olympic Committee has opted against imposing a blanket ban on the Russian team for next months games in Rio de Janeiro.Meeting after World Anti-Doping Agency reports alleged widespread doping and state-backed cover-ups of failed drug tests by Russians, the IOC ruled that a ban across all sports would unjustly punish clean athletes in Russia.However, the IOC has placed restrictions on the Russian team, including a measure barring the selection of any athletes who have previously served doping bans. It also set out eligibility criteria for the various international federations of Olympic sports.Here is a look at the reaction in Russia and around the world:---An athlete should not suffer and should not be sanctioned for a system in which he was not implicated and where he can show that he was not implicated...At the end of the day, we have to be able to look in the eye of the individual athletes concerned by this decision. -- IOC President Thomas Bach, a former Olympic fencer, tells reporters why the IOC did not impose a blanket ban on Russia.---When a crime is committed, the guilty party is tried and punished, but you dont put his family, friends and acquaintances behind bars just because they knew the criminal or they live in the same town. -- Russian Olympic Committee President Alexander Zhukov in an address to the IOC board ahead of its ruling not to impose a blanket ban.---Many, including clean athletes and whistleblowers, have demonstrated courage and strength in confronting a culture of state-supported doping and corruption within Russia. Disappointingly, however, in response to the moost important moment for clean athletes and the integrity of the Olympic Games, the IOC has refused to take decisive leadership.dddddddddddd The decision regarding Russian participation and the confusing mess left in its wake is a significant blow to the rights of clean athletes. -- U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart.---The IOC decision was to be expected. You cant behave improperly toward a power like Russia. -- Gennady Alyoshin, a Russian Olympic Committee official, in comments to Tass.---We are grateful to the IOC for allowing Russian athletes in. Im sure that the majority of the Russian national team will be able to comply with the criteria. -- Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko.---Well, thats the IOC board off my Xmas card list then, -- Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford of Britain on Twitter.---We have created and been through the process. We know how hard it is emotionally and rationally to get the process right... We continue to stand by to assist and offer advice to any international sports federations. Sebastian Coe, head of track and fields governing body, the IAAF, which barred all but one Russian athlete.---Raising her to the status of a hero is like stupidly spitting in all our faces.
