Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Aaron Fentress and Scott Reed look closer at first year offensive coordinator Scott Frost and speculate on how well he might fare at his new job as fall camp starts today.

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.

■ Dale Newton calls Daryle Hawkins a valued role player.

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.
