Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
• Oregon made it official yesterday and formally announced the completion of the football staff adding Nate Costa, Joe Bernardi and Cha'pelle Brown as graduate assistant coaches.

Bernardi worked with the Volunteers’ offensive line for the past two seasons following the completion of his collegiate career as a four-year starting center at Fresno State in 2010. The communications graduate was named to the Remington Award watch list prior to his junior and senior seasons. His father, Gary, is a 32-year Division I collegiate coaching veteran, including stops at Colorado (first year), Arizona, UCLA and USC.

Brown served as an undergraduate coach at Colorado in 2011 and a GA a year ago after completing a four-year playing career with the Buffaloes that culminated in the defensive back being named team MVP and a second-team all-Big 12 Conference standout in 2009. The sociology graduate and three-year starter was at Colorado for the same three years that Helfrich served as the program’s offensive coordinator (2006-08).

• Joe Packer predicts a bigger role for WR Dwayne Stanford in 2013.

• Jim Maloney opens the history book and travels back to 1948 to examine a game of firsts for many reasons as Oregon went to Ann Arbor to take on Michigan.
