Bellotti went 116-55 in his 14 years as head coach; including his time as offensive coordinator, he was part of more than 25 percent of Oregon’s 613 all-time victories entering 2014. He led the Ducks to Pac-10 titles in 2000 and 2001, and a Fiesta Bowl victory to cap the 2001 season, though it's less-heralded triumphs such as the 1996 win over Arizona that still resonate just as strong with Bellotti.
