Brian Kelly’s daughter, Grace, has been making the most of the college football season over the past few months.
As one of her dad’s most ardent supporters, Grace has been there front and center for his recent stints leading both Notre Dame’s and LSU’s football programs.
Along the way she has amassed a pretty major following in her own right.
This week, a number of photos Grace’s recent pool day caused something of a stir.

“Stunning honey,” one fan wrote.
“Living her best life,” another person agreed.
This isn’t the first time in recent months Grace has gone viral in this fashion. Between her provocative vacation photos and wild party pictures, she has been something of a mainstay in the news cycle.
It says a lot that in a week where fellow LSU star Olivia Dunne blew up online with her racy July 4th video, Grace still found a way to steal the show.
His daughter’s summertime antics notwithstanding, it will be interesting to see what sort of campaign awaits Brian Kelly in 2023. Just this week he came out and said that his program is still a year or so away from truly competing for a National Championship.
“We need another year of recruiting – one more really good year on both sides of the ball, I think, puts us in a position where, I think Year 3, the consistency piece, the depth of our program, the messaging, all the things we do on a day-to-day basis, puts us in a position to compete for a championship,” Brian Kelly told Blake Toppmeyer of The Daily Advertiser.
In the LSU coach’s mind, last season laid the “foundation” for success. A huge victory over Alabama proved as much. But there is still more work to be done.

Following last year’s disappointing debut performance against Florida State, many thought Brian Kelly might be doomed for failure in Baton Rouge. Then he bounced back with big wins over Mississippi State, Auburn, Florida and Ole Miss.
Sure, the Tennessee and Georgia blowout losses left something to be desired – but the latter team won a title when it was all said and done and the former was one of college football’s best in the first half of the season.
The future looks bright for the Tigers going forward. And as Brian Kelly continues to try to bring LSU back into the National Championship equation, Grace will be there cheering him on every step of the way.
