“I think that you and I will be talking five years from now and we’ll say, ‘You remember back in the 2013 interview after the Heart of Dallas Bowl, we talked about this?’ I think over half the teams in the NFL are going to be running this style of offense, in my opinion. Because it’s too easy to move the football.
Now, if you have Andrew Luck, if you have Brandon Weeden, if you have Peyton Manning, if you have Aaron Rodgers, if I have a pure drop-back style of quarterback that can just throw it, (it’s different). Like we had with Weeden — when we were running our offense with Weeden here a few years ago, we just said, ‘Look, we need to get him out there and don’t mess it up.’ The guy can throw it, and he’s different than other people. Well, there’s 32 teams in the NFL, and it’s interesting (that) when you watch it, there’s not 32 guys in the NFL that can just flat-out throw it. In some way, fashion or form, you’ve got to find a way to move the ball and score points. And you’re seeing it with these NFL coaches, because it’s just too easy.”

“It did. The difficult part of our profession (is) at some point it’s a business. There’s not anybody that’s got more loyalty to Oklahoma State and is more thankful for what they’ve done for me. But there’s certain times in all of our careers that we look and see what’s out there, just to make sure it’s best for me and my family. But also, if it’s best for me and my family, then that means it’s best for Oklahoma State. It can’t be a one-way street. They’ve been terrific with me. But I have to do that in order to make sure, because if I’m not just chomping at the bit to get to work every day, then I need to do something else. And right now, I’m chomping at the bit to get to work at Oklahoma State.”
