LOS ANGELES (AP) Theo Howard was still sweating from the exertion of an early training camp practice at UCLA when the receiver paused to sum up his experience so far with coach Chip Kelly.
"It's high tempo," Howard said. "It's pretty fast. It's a step up from what we were doing last year. We're always running down the field, always doing something."
Kelly led the speed-based revolution in college football during his wildly successful four-year tenure at Oregon. His next act in the college game has only just begun at long-underachieving UCLA, where hungry boosters have finally landed the world-class coach they've always coveted to lead the program past crosstown rival USC and into the game's stratosphere.
