As UCLA continues to install new coach Chip Kelly’s dynamic offensive playbook, it appears the Bruins have reached the next step of progression.
The Saturday practice for UCLA featured a healthy mix of zone read and option plays, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

From the LA Daily News:
Kelly said he’s installing the offense in a “layered approach.” After eight practices of screen passes, it looks like we’re finally getting to the fun layer. During team periods that included live tackling Saturday, the offense unveiled interesting triple-option plays and more zone-read plays. The quarterbacks sometimes struggled while making the pitch on the options, with some of the lateral passes soaring past or over the running back, but it is still early in installation and there is time to iron out those problems.
UCLA’s spring game is in two weeks, which will give fans a first true glimpse of Kelly’s system.
