Chip Kelly

I’m shooting a spot with Coach Chip Kelly at Oregon.  He’s since moved on a few times.

He had a great program at Oregon (paid for by Phil Knight) that was evidenced by the huge inventory of various uniforms.  The facility was fabulous and I asked what the construction was across the street.

That’s our NEW facility.


The spot was half improvised and we were in the theater (a full-on screening room with amphitheater plush seating, cupholders, and all that).  I asked Chip to do a chalkboard diagram.

He stared at me.


We don’t do that anymore.  Everything is digital now, but if you want it, I’ll do it.

He saw my chastened look, went over to a whiteboard, found a crayon, and diagramed for me.

Thanks, Chip.
