Legendary Coaches Influence on Kelly's Views

Disneyland -- Oregon's Chip Kelly has been called on of the brightest minds in college football with his innovative style of play. Kelly, however maintains that the success of the Oregon Ducks is about preparation and paying attention to details. Anyone ever watching Oregon practice can attest that the Ducks concentrate on those small tasks that can payoff in big results.

One question we've always wanted to ask Kelly is if he was ever influenced by legendary coach John Wooden, the coach that brought so many championships to UCLA on the basketball court. Was Wooden an influence on Kelly? Were there any other coaches that Kelly took parts of his current philosophy from?
