"The type of athletes we have recruited and are currently recruiting are best suited for the spread offense that we will continue to utilize," Bellotti says in a statement.

The Ducks ranked ninth in the nation in offense (423 yards per game) and led the Pac-10 in offense and rushing (182 yards per game).

Bellotti says the goal is to lead the conference every year in total offense and scoring.
