Oregon sophomore receiver Mycah Pittman has played his last game at Oregon.

Ducks’ coach Mario Cristobal said Wednesday that Pittman is no longer with the program.

“He’s moving on, we’re moving,” Cristobal said. “We wish him the best.”

According to Pro Football Focus, Pittman has played 404 offensive snaps for the Ducks this season, which is more than any other Oregon receiver.

But that playing time has not necessarily led to a statistically productive season. In 10 games, Pittman has 12 catches for 197 yards, and he does not have a touchdown. He has also returned 15 punts for 151 yards.

In Oregon’s win over Washington State last Saturday, the Ducks ran 69 offensive plays and Pittman played a season-low 23 snaps. For the second week in a row, he did not have a catch.

There has been speculation recently that Pittman has been unhappy with his utilization in Oregon’s offense. Earlier this season, he delivered a spirited defense of Oregon quarterback Anthony Brown during an interview.

Pittman had his most productive game of the season against UCLA on Oct. 23. Afterward, Oregon coach Mario Cristobal was asked about Pittman and Devon Williams’ respective contributions against the Bruins.

“They’re continuing to do things in practice that are affording them these opportunities,” Cristobal said. “I really appreciate these two guys. I know and have watched the level of potential and impact they have, and to me, there is more in the tank and we gotta get it out of them.”

Pittman was listed as the No. 2 option at slot receiver behind Jaylon Redd on Oregon’s latest organizational chart.

A former 4-star signee, Pittman was the No. 94 overall player in the class of 2019 and the No. 15 receiver according to 247 Sports. He held offers from Alabama, USC, Georgia, LSU, and countless others.

The son of former NFL running back Michel Pittman Sr., and brother of Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman Jr., Pittman was one of the gems of Oregon’s 2019 class.

But he dealt with a series of injuries early in his career and appears to have played his last game as a Duck.
