COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Quarterback J.T. Barrett[1] said coaching changes were needed at Ohio State and getting new offensive coordinators played into his decision to return for his final year of eligibility.

During the Ohio State basketball game on Sunday, Barrett accepted the Chicago Tribune Silver Football award as the Big Ten's best player. He said bringing in new offensive coaches was a positive move because "sometimes we get set in our ways."

After passing-game struggles culminated in a 31-0 rout by Clemson in the College Football Playoff, coach Urban Meyer ushered out Ed Warinner and Tim Beck, replacing them with former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson and NFL assistant Ryan Day.

"Something new," Barrett said. "Change is also a good thing. Change is not always bad. I think it was needed."

Barrett said last season's offense was effective but wasn't "lighting up the scoreboard" like fans had come to expect from the Buckeyes.

"It was not like we were awful by any means," he said. "We've got the train running, we just got to make sure it's going full speed."

He said he considered the coaching changes as he decided whether to enter the NFL draft or return for a final season. Day, who also will coach quarterbacks, comes to Ohio State with 15 years of coaching experience, spending last season leading quarterbacks under Chip Kelly at San Francisco.

"That was part of it, just trying to make sure that if I was to come back, it was something I was going to do that was best for me and for me to grow as a quarterback," Barrett said.

Barrett, who holds the school record for touchdowns, said he never thought of transferring. There had been speculation he might join former Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman at Texas for his final year.

Guard Billy Price[2] decided before the season ended to return, saying it's important for him to graduate from Ohio State. He will shift over to center to replace All-American Pat Elflein[3], giving the Buckeyes an experienced battery.

He said Barrett returning will make the Buckeyes better.

"It's another leader, a guy I've been to war with, to come back and lead this team," Price said.

Oregon[1] co-offensive coordinator and tight end coach David Reaves was arrested Saturday evening by the Eugene Police and charged with driving under the influence.

"University of Oregon assistant football coach David Reaves was arrested last night and charged with Driving Under the Influence by members of the Eugene Police Department," Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens said in a news release. "Reaves has been placed on administrative leave and the process to terminate his employment with cause has commenced. The University has high standards for the conduct of employees and is addressing this matter with the utmost of seriousness."

Reaves was officially hired by Oregon on Jan. 17.

Oregon coach Willie Taggart had brought Reaves along from USF, where he had coached four different positions in four seasons.

The news of Reaves' DUI comes less than a week after the Oregon athletic department suspended strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde for a month without pay after three Oregon football plays were hospitalized following offseason workouts.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Louisiana-Lafayette's Elijah McGuire[1] ran 18 yards for a touchdown, snapping a fourth-quarter tie and giving the West a 10-3 victory in the 92nd East-West Shrine game on Saturday.

San Diego State's Calvin Munson[2] recovered a fumble inside the West 5 yard-line, and another East threat was stopped on downs in the final minute of the game's lowest scoring matchup since the East won 14-6 in 1992.

Idaho's Austin Rehkow[3] kicked a 27-yard field goal in the opening quarter for the West, and North Carolina's Nick Weiler[4] countered with a 21-yarder in the second quarter for the East.

McGuire, who rushed for 1,127 yards and seven TDs for Louisiana-Lafayette this season, scooted through a hole of the right side of the East defense to score the game's only touchdown. Munson recovered a fumble by Michigan's De'Veon Smith[5] on third-and-2 from the West 5 to thwart an East scoring opportunity set up by a muffed punt.

Illinois' Wes Lunt[6] completed 11 of 14 passes for 101 yards and no interceptions while sharing quarterback duties for the West with Cincinnati's Gunner Kiel[7] and Western Michigan's Zach Terrell[8].

Central Michigan's Cooper Rush[9], Penn's Alek Torgensen and Southern Mississippi's Nick Mullens[10] saw action at quarterback for the East, though none of them threw for more than 94 yards.

McGuire finished with 42 yards rushing on seven carries.

COACH `EM UP

Former NFL defensive lineman Brentson Buckner, now an assistant with the Arizona Cardinals, coached the East squad. His staff included ex-players and current NFL assistants Duce Staley, Bobby Engram, Curtis Fuller and Sam Mills. Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards led the West staff, which included DeShea Townsend, Larry Foote and Hank Fraley.

TILLMAN WINNER

Air Force safety Weston Steelhammer[11] won the Pat Tillman Award, presented annually since 2005 to a player who exemplifies leadership on and off the field. The 2016 recipient was Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds.
