School in the News: Oregon

Oregon head coach Chip Kelly will now be coaching another mostly green team with wings on its helmets, the Philadelphia Eagles.  Chances are slim that Michigan might benefit from this turn of events, but it's worth taking a look anyway.

2013 Oregon commit with Michigan offer: WR Darren Carrington
Current roster players recruited by Michigan: DE Arik Armstead, TE Evan Baylis, TE Pharaoh Brown, OT Jake Fisher, DT Ricky Heimuli, CB Dior Mathis, QB Jake Rodrigues, WR Dwayne Stanford, OT Andre Yruretagoyena

Oregon is expected to promote offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich to head coach, so the program won't change much, and I wouldn't expect mass defections.

  1. Retaining their OC is a good start (and how they maintained momentum before when Kelly replaced Belloti), now it'll interesting to see how much of the offensive staff sticks around and how much follows Kelly to PHI. I would think continuity would be important for a team that runs a system like they do.

    Rich Rod's window of opportunity just got a little wider in the Pac12.
