GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Brian Kelly’s affect on the other coaches he’s worked with is a lot like ancestry.com: You can follow the line back to where the family started and see what everyone is doing today.

Kelly’s tenure at Grand Valley State University started with humble beginnings, but blossomed into quite the coaching tree.

For Jeff Quinn, the opportunity to branch out came as the head coach at the University of Buffalo.

Another branch is Chuck Martin, who after four years under Kelly at Notre Dame is now the head coach at Miami, Ohio.

The Kelly descendants continue to shape and change the college landscape.
