Helfrich checks in on podcast

Ivan Maisel and I chatted with new Oregon coach Mark Helfrich on Thursday morning for the ESPNU college football podcast.

You can listen here.

Naturally, we touched on an array of topics:

  • Helfrich dealing with “not being Chip Kelly.”

  • What are the recruits asking Helfrich?

  • Replacing the two coaches who did leave the program.

  • Will the Ducks be more pass oriented next season?

  • The competition at backup quarterback.

  • The testing process of his first spring practices, including figuring out how offensive plays will be called going forward.

  • The back-and-forth, will he stay or will he go, for Kelly after the Fiesta Bowl.

And much, much more!

By the way, Kevin will have a Q&A on Friday morning with Helfrich.
