ALLENDALE, Mich. (WZZM) - Brian Kelly's legacy at Grand Valley State University will last beyond his two national football championships.
GVSU renamed its three-year old indoor turf facility the Kelly Family Sports Center at a dedication ceremony Saturday morning.
An overflow crowd of more than 400 family, friends and supporters of Laker athletics were on hand to welcome back Kelly, the current head coach at the University of Notre Dame.
Kelly, his wife Paqui and their three children unveiled a large family portrait that sits on the east end of the turf building along with a plaque celebrating Kelly's achievements at GVSU.
"My son was part of a couple championships and he really didn't understand it," Kelly said. "He's walking around now and saying, 'Wow, this is a neat place."
