The whole thing reminds me of the hoopla around Billy Beane, another instance where all you hear is 'genius genius genius'. Yeah. He's the genius who traded Donaldson and Cespedes. Beyond those two bad moves, there's some success but no World Series ring. Just like Chip Kelly, Beane is an interesting fellow with interesting ideas. He makes good copy--I can certainly understand why writers and journalists like these two guys--but neither has yet hit the top. .
Chip Kelly is no exception.
In the traditional world of college football, Chip has broken the mold with his science-based training regimen, fast-paced offense, and a Phil Jackson-esque Zen mindset. I was originally under the impression that Chip was a gadget coach who took a very good Oregon program and made it slightly better. What Chip Kelly does is actually very simple: fundamental football, big guys hitting little guys, and exploiting mismatches.
This book also gives the reader insight and background on Chip Kelly, who just six years ago was the offensive coordinator at New Hampshire. His rapid ascendency and teaching/coaching methods is one to be studied.
Granted, I may be reading more into the book than should be permitted. Still, the trustworthy, simple, results-drive approach of coaching that Chip Kelly brings to the football world is one of the many reasons I can't seem to get enough of his work.
If you need your Chip-fix, or simply want a sufficient offseason read to hold your appetite for Duck football, download this book and have at it, y'all. Just remember, don't waste valuable minutes procrastinating...Coach Kelly is not a time-of-possession guy. He expects results.
If you are a leader of any kind, and do put your team performance first, and personal ego last, this is one philosophy to read up on.
Basing my future leadership style even more on what is in this book, I'll be better prepared and have a solid foundation to coach from.
