The Tao of Chip Kelly

by

The Tao of Chip Kelly Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chip Kelly lit up the football world as the coach of the University of Oregon Ducks. With their gambling defense that led college football in takeaways, and a lightning-fast no huddle offense averaging 48 points a game, the previously unheralded Ducks went 46-7 during Kelly's four year stint.

What is behind Chip's astonishing success? A lot more than just plays and strategies. As Kelly starts to apply his talents to the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles, this book looks at the remarkable philosophy and innovative management strategies that Chip Kelly uses to mold his teams — strategies that every leader or business manager can use.

Review:

"Having studied Kelly's time at Oregon extensively, Saltveit has written the book on Kelly. Literally." Dan Graziano, ESPN

Review:

"Saltveit lays out a clear picture of how Kelly operates. The coach follows a simple philosophy that is woven with simple truths ('Big people beat up little people') and the results have been simple to comprehend as well. Oregon was 46-7 and appeared in a BCS bowl game in each of Kelly's four seasons as head coach." Bob Ford, Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"Michael Vick might want to use some of the free time between now and training camp to read the book, especially the chapter about Darron Thomas, the Oregon quarterback who left school early and is now buried on the taxi squad of the Calgary Stampeders." Stan Hochman, Philadelphia Daily News legend
