Chip Kelly hasn’t decided on a quarterback just yet, but one thing is for sure…the Ducks are loaded at tailback.
Watch this video interview of running backs coach Gary Campbell. You can tell Campbell is stoked to coach this group of backs.
Of the quarterbacks, offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich says, "If there's one overarching principle in this whole deal, it's taking care of the football. Take care of the ball, absolutely, that's No. 1. Then get us in the end zone - if that's running it, throwing it or handing it off to the right guy in the right situations.''
"So many things in our offense come down to just handing the ball off, based on what somebody else is doing. And those are decisions those guys have to make in a split-second with a high level of consistency.''
Oregon hosts New Mexico in the season-opener. The Ducks travel to Tennessee the following week. Portland State has the luxury of facing the Duck's backfield the following week.
