There are plenty of bodies at wide receiver, including junior college transfer Kevin White and true freshman Daikiel Shorts.
"We obviously lost a lot of production that we have to replace, which is just the nature of college football,'' Holgorsen said. "You're going to lose good players and it's going to be good for your program to see young guys like Geno, Tavon, Stedman and [center] Joey [Madsen] move onto the NFL. That's going to be positive for our program.
"But by no means will we panic whatsoever. We need to get guys in here and we need to coach those guys up.''
But perhaps just as important as addressing the gaping holes on offense is getting to work on what was statistically - and in any other context - one of the worst defenses in all of college football.
It will be largely a new group of coaches working on that aspect, too. Keith Patterson will be in his first spring leading the defense after he was elevated to the coordinator post prior to the bowl game. Also new are secondary coaches Tony Gibson and Brian Mitchell.
"Defensively, Coach Patterson is continuing to get a scheme put in place. He got a head start on it heading into the bowl game,'' Holgorsen said. "Obviously we didn't get near what we wanted to get into it, but still got a lot out of this regardless of how the game ended up. We still got a lot out of that from a defensive standpoint as far as getting ahead for the spring.
"But we got the coaches in place and got the scheme in place and we're continuously meeting with these guys to put the scheme in place and put the philosophy in place. We're excited to see these guys improve.''
Improving the special teams play will also be addressed. Joe DeForest was the defensive coordinator and safeties coach last year, but will work exclusively with special teams this season.
"We'll do our best this spring to develop that, but it's not just about the kicker, punter, snapper and returner,'' Holgorsen said. "It's about 50 other guys that need to learn how to take care of some technique stuff when it comes to special teams and the importance of being good in space.''
