This will be the first time that Helfrich will be a coach of any kind in the National Football League, spending the better part of the last two decades in the college game.

Helfrich, 44, came to the Oregon Ducks in 2009 as the offensive coordinator for Chip Kelly's teams.

He spent the past six seasons coaching Notre Dame's offensive line. Chicago has been busy the past week hiring new head coach Matt Nagy on Monday and Helfrich today.

Britain rejects request to grant diplomatic status to Julian Assange

In his final season, OR went 4-8, and every week there was speculation about his future in Eugene, generating bad feelings among fans. Or he could have reunited with Chip Kelly, for whom he was offensive coordinator at OR, and run the offense at UCLA. But the offense was still formidable, resulting in quarterback Marcus Mariota winning the 2014 Heisman Trophy.

The Browns also snapped up at least one Special Teams Player of the Week award in the AFC every season from 2011 through 2016. Helfrich was instrumental in developing current Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota into a Heisman Trophy victor during his time in Oregon. And his play-calling will likely reflect much of what he's learned in Andy Reid's West Coast-spread offense hybrid as far as utilizing playmakers in space and exploiting matchups. His speciality has been working with quarterbacks during his career, having coached the position at Boise State, Arizona State (under current Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter), Colorado and Oregon.
