Oregon head football coach Mark Helfrich confirmed this afternooon that Dungy will explore the option of transferring from Oregon.

“We will continue to support Eric in pursuit of his college football dreams,” Helfrich said. “He will always be a member of the University of Oregon family. We wish him well.”

ESPN reported earlier in the day that Dungy is expected to transfer to South Florida in his hometown of Tampa, Fla.
