EUGENE, Ore. -- Ahead of Oregon football's second spring practice, head coach Mario Cristobal announced the departure of receivers coach, Jovon Bouknight.

"We've been fortunate for the most part to have our core guys in tact within our staff and when it happens, it happens," said Cristobal. "And I think like anything else in this industry whenever you have an opportunity, you have an opportunity to continue to move the program forward right. To, you know always upgrade the program."

Bouknight spent only one season with the Ducks after leaving Utah State. In his lone season with the program, Oregon recorded 3,615 yards for 35 touchdowns. The timing of the decision was a bit awkward, considering he was in attendance for the first Spring practice, Thursday. Cristobal said he chalked it up to the "nature of college football."

Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead said graduate assistant, Jonathon Krause is filling in for the time being.

"I know coach has got a great list of candidates together and if he ask for input which he has, i'll give him what we're looking for," Moorhead said. "But coach Krause has been doing a great job with them in the interim. You know, like coach has done; he's always had a very thorough process of vetting candidates. He'll get someone in here who's a great fit from a chemistry stand point, who's very knowledgable with X's and O's, and who's a great teacher with fundamentals and techniques, and obviously someone who's a great recruiter. He'll find someone with those characteristics."

Oregon spring practices wrap up on April 18th with the Spring Game, in Autzen Stadium at 2:00 p.m.
