Riley's new OC won't mean big changes on O

Riley's new OC won't mean big changes on O

MIKE RILEY SAYS any hire he made for the offensive coordinator position was going to be a coach who would not change what Oregon State does on offense, but enhance it. John Garrett was his first call.

At the same time, Riley says he wants Garrett to analyze the offense in its entirety and come up with ways to improve it.

Will those improvements mostly be found in the running game or passing game? That question probably won't be answered for a while.

You can always tweak things to make them better, says Riley. But in listening to how often Riley mentions Sean Mannion in this video, it seems clear the 2014 Beaver offense will be built around fifth-year senior quarterback Sean Mannion.
