Some key points new Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen talked about during his teleconference with the media Thursday, Jan. 21:

→Regarding his use of running backs and the running game: "It’s all about touches. You have a variety of runs, of screens, of passes. It’s all about the play you call. Some games, if it’s working, we are going to run the ball more. But I’m not going to keep calling runs if we keep losing yards.”

→On the work ahead: "A lot has to be done, a lot of evaluation, a lot of teaching. And evaluating the kids that are there, I can’t do that on paper.”

→On Kendall Hunter: "Everybody knows who Kendall Hunter is, he’s an unbelievable running back.”

→On Graham Harrell and Brandon Jones: "They’re two really good young coaches who will get some quality control spots to learn how to be coaches.”

→On the tight ends’ role in his offense: "The tight ends I’ve always used. They can put their hands down and get out and block people, but they also can run down the field and make some things happen or even split out in a flex position.
