Ryan Kelly Engaged to Cowher’s Daughter
Roughly two weeks after earning his Duke diploma and a month before he could potentially be drafted by an NBA team, former Blue Devils forward Ryan Kelly crossed off another big item on his life’s to-do list: Get engaged to his longtime girlfriend and the daughter of former NFL coach Bill Cowher, Lindsay.

It’s likely that this has been in the works for some time. Kelly and Cowher have been dating ever since they starred on the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, respectively, at the Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, NC (left picture below). Cowher, in fact, played at Wofford during the 2009–2010 season before giving up the sport and transferring closer to home (and to Kelly) at Elon.
We wish Kelly and Cowher the best of luck going forward. And one piece of advice to Kelly: Don’t make your future father-in-law angry - ever.
