NY Times explains where Brian Kelly 'learned to be a head coach'

The New York Times came out with an interesting piece yesterday on Brian Kelly and his time at Grand Valley State University, the Division II school where he cut his teeth as a head coach.

“I needed to learn how to be a head coach. Everybody wants to be one, but Grand Valley provided me on-the-job training. It prepared me for everything that came after.” Kelly explains in the article.

The article goes on to explain how some of his philosophies during his first few years as a head coach have influenced this Notre Dame team (including how one special recruiting class can change everything), as well as some very good insight from people that he has worked with along the way that knew that he would eventually get an opportunity on a bigger stage at some point down the road.

Take a few minutes and read the whole article, which can be found here.
