    Steve Wyche reported that KK contacted Lincoln Riley, Murray's college head coach to get details on the numbering schemes and vernacular they used in his offense at Oklahoma. KK plans to change some of his play calls and language to match, in order to help speed Murray's transition.

    I've never heard of anybody doing this before. But it's the perfect time for it to happen. New QB. New offense the team hasn't seen yet. It makes perfect sense. Why not make things easiest for the guy that matters most? Let Kingsbury learn some new terms. He's in there grinding 24/7 anyway.

    Is this guy the anti-Whisenhunt?

    Edit.
    Here's Wyche's quote from Up to the Minute on KK's call to Lincoln Riley:

    "...he's somebody who wants to be pushed. But Kingsbury and that staff also know that Murray has to succeed. So one thing Kingsbury has done, called up Murray's former coach at Oklahoma, Lincoln Riley and said 'Okay look, what do I need to do to push and coach this kid the right way? And also, give me some of your numbering schemes on offense and give me some of your venacular. I'm gonna change some of the language and some of the play calls in my playbook to make it more familiar to Kyler Murray, so when he gets in the huddle, he can get through everything he needs to get through to get the guys to the LOS and get them lined up properly.'"

    This coach signing has Chip Kelly written all over it.

    He's the "go with the flow" head coach.. you adapt to your players, not the other way around. The easiest thing to do as a coach is to just jam your message and philosophies down the players throat.. I love this approach. An adaptable head coach who is willing to change.. who would have thought. Lol.

    KK has been saying from day one he adapts to his players. His job is to put his players in a position to succeed. Not sure how a negative can be made of this.

    Chip Kelly is a stubborn mule. No way he ever does something like this...which was probably his demise as an NFL coach. They adapted to his offense and he didn't respond to that adaptation. Imo

    Why would Lincoln Riley actively share this information with someone who could easily be his opponent in a couple of years?

    And more importantly, why can't Kyler relay this information to his coach on the concepts he's supposedly mastered?

    I'm with LIAC... I don't like this.

    But the catch with the Air Raid offense is that it's a fluid play call... there are options within options for a given play depending on how the defense reacts so good luck with that one :)

    great points. Not going to lie, KM doesn’t strike me as the sharpest tool in the shed. I hope I’m wrong.

    Good friends on & off the field. Dont forget Reily was backup QB to KK @ Texas Tech. Most coaches don't have pride to do something like this. It's like Zoro going to train with MiHawk. Excuse the one piece reference but could not resist

    I do. Either it's a success or failure. If it's a failure Keim should be out on his keister come New year's day next year.

    So at least they’ll win a division title in year one in that case.

    Sure, but this is the kind of information you don't just pass along. Especially for a hot coaching candidate like Riley. Honestly, if I were Lincoln, and I got asked for this, I'd intentionally pass along bad information. This is the kind of shared info that can get your offense called at the line by an enterprising defense.

    (lol'd @ One Piece though)

    That makes me even more concerned. What GM in their right mind is going to come take over this team after we dump Keim? He won't have a coaching choice, or QB choice. Even if this team sucks, you almost have to keep Keim.

    Chip Kelly inherited a team with actual talent.
