But as a head coach... he's known to be incredibly organized, runs a terrific practice, and is incredible at disciplining players to play within the system. His up tempo approach only works because it's practically run like a machine. Let's say he delegated the entire offense to his OC (We know he won't... just pretend here). If he did that, he could still potentially be a terrific head coach.
So again... I always liked Kelly because I like coaches who are going to get the most out of their players. And Kelly will do that. The risk is in the scheme, and we just don't know what he's going to do here. Hence, boom/bust.
Getting the most out of your players at the college level is a much different process than in the NFL.
