    The Trib (Dave Matter): Behind the Numbers

    So, what do we know about Erickson? His one-back offense and three-step passing game helped usher in the modern spread systems. ASU runs a more modern, NFL cousin of the spread, but you can find pieces of Erickson's offense everywhere in college football, including Missouri and Arizona State.

    "His offense back in the '80s set a standard," Gary Pinkel said. "He was doing things out of the one-back that nobody in the country was doing. He was one of the originators in the spread offense. He's always got his hand in the offense. I guarantee you that. There's so much spread now that’s come off of that. They're very dynamic in their offense. They have a lot of things they do. He also likes to be able to run the football, too, even though he has all the exotic formations with the one-back."

    Erickson honed the offense as an assistant under Jack Elway at San Jose State and developed his own "one-back spread" at Idaho, Wyoming and Washington State.
