Fentress: New coach and former offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said Frost earned the opportunity during the spring when he called the majority of plays.
"He's a bright guy, sharp guy, who has done a really good job taking control of that role," Helfrich said. "He's somebody that I trust wholeheartedly as I do the other coaches."
Reed: Expect this offense to be very similar in their productivity as they were under Kelly. Frost is a very smart young coach that understands the principles of the blur offense; get teams out of position; get them tired; make their minds cloudy and strike.

It's also an invaluable resource for the coaches to have a player that understands every aspect of the offense, able to fill in in an emergency in a number of spots, and serve as a leader and an example in a group of young receivers. It's impossible not to root for Daryle Hawkins, either as a football player or a person.
