Brian Kelly and family give $1 million for new sports facility

A new and improved training room and recovery suite at LSU’s Football Operations Facility will happen thanks, in part, to coach Brian Kelly and his family.

The Tiger Athletic Foundation on Friday announced that the coach and his family have given $1 million to the project.

“The contribution from the Kelly Family – the largest by a sitting head coach in university history

will assist with the proposed expansion and enhancement of the existing athletic training space within the football operations building

pending approval by the LSU Board of Supervisors,” TAF said in a news release.

The training room and recovery suite will be open to all 21 varsity athletics programs

Investing in the health and well-being of student-athletes is among the most important commitments a coach can make
