"Culture beats scheme" is the Chip Kelly quote that you've probably heard only a billion times since he first said it prior to an Eagles-Giants game last season. But now the quote isn't limited to use by Chip Kelly. Take a look at this tweet from the head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, Brian Kelly:
Our team motto for the year: CULTURE BEATS SCHEME Each day is a chance to build our culture on & off the field. pic.twitter.com/uYkZPcoFhV— Brian Kelly (@CoachBrianKelly) July 13, 2015
If you're wondering, no, they're not related. Brian Kelly should be a familiar name, however, since the Eagles were looking into him during their search for a new head coach in early 2013. I think it's safe to say most Eagles fans are glad they got Chip instead of Brian.
In any case, it's always cool to see the kind of influence Chip has. It doesn't seem like Notre Dame is directly crediting the Eagles coach, but, c'mon. That's totally his quote.
