When rumors started flying about Mike Bellotti's impending departure, inside the Oregon program everything remained calm. Once Chip Kelly took over and had the immediate success that had other elite programs and NFL franchises sniffing around, the program braced for another change.

But once again, things remained calm on the inside while everything on the outside seemed to spiral out of control. Just like they did in 2009, the Ducks acted quickly and promoted from within to keep everything in place. Today the school announced that former offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich would become the Ducks' new coach.

And recruiting was one of the reasons.
