Even after only one NFL season, Chip Kelly has been hailed as one of the true innovators in the game. Not just as a football coach, either, it appears.

Surely you've been inundated with videos for the Ice Bucket Challenge to support ALS research — a very worthy cause for sure — but Kelly's interpretation might take the cake. Instead of sitting back and waiting for a bucket of water to the head, Kelly decided to take matters into his own hands.

This is brilliant. And so Chip. Want evidence? Look at the expression of the three Eagles players, who look over at their rock-star coach doing a swan dive and hardly break stride.

What a gem.
