Jim Kelly resigns as Fostoria football coach

Jim Kelly is practicing what he preaches.
With his wife accepting a job at the University of Connecticut, Kelly has resigned as Fostoria High School’s football coach after two seasons.
“Family’s got to come first. That’s what he’s always preached to the kids,” FHS Athletic Director Tim Murray said.
Kelly said that after two 0-10 seasons under his watch, “I’m sorry we didn’t win more,” but he thinks the Redmen will soon have a reversal of fortune that reflects the offseason work the players have done.
“It’s difficult to leave Fostoria,” he said. “I think things are going to get better this year. But when you have to make a decision, you do what’s best for your family.”
Kelly’s wife, Montique, is leaving her job as executive director of the Bowling Green State University Alumni Association to become UConn’s associate vice president for alumni relations and executive director of the alumni association.
