National Analysts have suggested Oregon needs to shake up the football staff.

Last weekend, Lee Corso a former coach and currently a college football analyst, suggested that Mark Helfrich needs to make changes in his staff in order for Oregon to get back to a team that contend for national championships. On Tuesday, Helfrich was asked to comment on those remarks during the weekly Tuesday media conference.

The Oregon Ducks are 4-3 for the season and 2-2 in conference play. Coming off a 26-20 road win over Washington on Saturday, the Ducks are in a bye week as they will not play Saturday but will return to action on Oct. 29, at Arizona State.

Oregon is currently in last place in several conference defensive categories including points allowed (36.0 ppg), total defense allowed (461.9 ppg) and pass defense (306.6 ypg).

Last week, for the second week in a row, while there was noticeable improvement in Oregon’s defensive effort, the Ducks nearly blew a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter.

However, Helfrich believes that the improvement is promising and as long as the Ducks continue to improve, there is no plan for change.
