Just 12 months ago it was the start of the "Willie Taggart Era" in Eugene. Now it's Mario Cristobal's turn.
The team's former co-offensive coordinator is embarking on his first season at the helm of the Ducks. Taggart, meanwhile, is doing the same at Florida State after a one-year tenure at Oregon.
It's not quite Cristobal's debut. He led the Ducks in last season's Las Vegas Bowl, a 38-28 loss to Boise State. With a full season in front of him, Cristobal's clearly ready to move on from 2017's 7-6 finish.
