but he is better at overall program development than Weis (not saying much).

They both got where they are because of their system (and Weis also likely because he knew the defensive call ahead of time) and are reluctant to change/adjust. I think that Weis is an unlikable guy that did a poor job of hiring assistants and never placed enough emphasis on strength and conditioning (just had a bunch of fat guys) while Kelly could have had more success by adjusting his scheme to focus more on running the ball. I do not think Weis had to adjust his offensive scheme much and I think that overall his scheme was and is better than Kelly's.
