Not 30 minutes after the Oregon Ducks completed an absolutely embarrassing collapse against the Oregon State Beavers in which they blew a 17-point fourth-quarter lead, the news came out that offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham is reportedly finalizing a deal to become the next head coach for the Arizona State Sun Devils.
This is not a huge surprise, since Dillingham has been rumored to be attached to that coaching vacancy all season as a former alum from ASU. The magnificent first year of playcalling that Dillingham had at Oregon only strengthened his resume.

While it will be great to see Dillingham land in a nice position with a chance to grow Dan Lanning’s coaching tree, the departure leaves a lot of unanswered questions for the Ducks. Where do they go from here? What are the ramifications of the move? How will this impact recruiting?
Let’s try our best to answer some of those questions.
How will this impact recruiting?
The more important question is how will the loss of Kenny Dillingham impact the commitment from 5-star quarterback Dante Moore?
Moore, one of the top-rated quarterbacks in the nation, has been committed to the Ducks since July, and he is just weeks away from signing his national letter of intent with Oregon. One of his main recruiters has been Dillingham, who has developed a close relationship with him over the past couple of years.
Does Dillingham’s decision to head to ASU make it so that Moore waivers on his commitment to Oregon? Obviously, we can’t know for sure, but it will be interesting to watch in the coming days.
More than just the QB, will there be other players who are committed to Oregon that will re-open their recruitment now that the OC is out the door? You can hope that Dan Lanning is a good enough recruiter…
