OSU Football Assistants Announced...Ducks' Nix Heisman Finalist

College Football:

The Transfer period began yesterday. Oregon lost two defensive backs and two wide receivers. Among the players the Ducks could be targeting include former Washington State quarterback Cam Ward. Ward entered the portal but has also said he is considering the NFL Draft. Along with the QB position Oregon’s 2024 squad will have several needs on both offense and defense. 

It’s College football awards week. Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson was announced as one of three finalists for the 2023 Rimington Trophy, which goes to the most outstanding center. Quarterback Bo Nix is up for several awards, including the Heisman Trophy, which will be announced Saturday.

The other Heisman finalists include Washington’s Michael Penix Jr.

Oregon State football head coach Trent Bray has selected the first four assistant coaches to his staff for next season. Current interim head coach Kefense Hynson will stay on for wide receivers and Anthony Perkins will coach defensive backs. Former players Ryan Gunderson and Kyle DeVan are coming back to Corvallis. Gunderson will be offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. DeVan will coach O-line.

Quarterback Aidan Chiles is leaving the Beavers. Reports say he could transfer to Michigan State to play again for Jonathon Smith and Brian Lindgren who recruited him to Corvallis. The Freshman saw some action for OSU this season.
