While Ryan Kelly and Duke didn’t reach the Final Four this past season, there is still reason for the outgoing senior to celebrate. Last night, Kelly got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Lindsay, who is the daughter of Bill Cowher, long-time NFL coach and football analyst. That also means he’s going to have one of the coolest (and most terrifying) fathers-in-law in the world.
Kelly tweeted the news out last night, along with a picture of the diamond ring.

Kelly and Cowher have been dating since high school, so the news doesn’t come as a surprise. Also, as FTW notes, this isn’t the first time one of Cowher’s daughters has married a professional athlete. His older daughter Meaghan is married to an NHL player as well. Of course, Ryan Kelly isn’t technically a professional athlete yet. He’s a borderline second-round pick in most mock drafts. Still, you get the idea.
We wish them both congratulations.
