Coach Stats

Why should this nominee be considered for the Broyles Award?
In his first season as Oregon’s offensive coordinator, Dillingham has directed one of the nation’s most prolific and creative offenses in the country. He has reunited with quarterback Bo Nix after being his OC at Auburn in 2019, and Nix is in the thick of the Heisman Trophy race as the regular season winds down. Dillingham’s offense is one of just two in the nation to score 40-plus points eight times this season through week 11, and the Ducks rank in the top 20 nationally in first downs per game (1st), total offense (2nd), scoring offense (4th), rushing offense (10th) and passing offense (19th). Oregon’s dynamic offense under Dillingham has been the driving force behind Oregon’s 8-2 record this season, with the Ducks in position to reach a fourth straight Pac-12 Championship Game.
