Brian Kelly’s daughter went viral on TikTok after her father left for LSU.
Since Kelly was recently hired as a head coach at LSU, his daughter Grace Kelly–who is a senior at Notre Dame–shared a TikTok reacting to her father’s departure for the south.
“When you still have to graduate from Notre Dame in five months but your dad already left for LSU,” Kelly added in the post, with the caption “ready to get booed on my way to class every morning.”

One of Kelly’s friends joined in the fun, and shared a TikTok of Kelly running down a hallway mimicking the “Red light, green light” trend. Kelly was poised down a hallway as the post captioned, “getting through senior year at Notre Dame.” As Kelly took off running down the hallway, the caption was changed to, “Dad becomes a head coach at LSU.”
As the post was intended to make fun of the change, Grace Kelly shared a series of posts in support for her father’s new job. She shared some photos with her family at Tiger Stadium on Dec. 1 captioned “feels like home,” and made another TikTok post on Friday evening saying, “Geaux Tigers.”

Kelly was announced as LSU’s new head coach on Nov. 30 after a series of unusual events. He spent 12 years with the Fighting Irish and left the program as the school’s all-time winningest coach with a 113-40 record overall. He signed a 10-year contract with $95 million, plus incentives. Notre Dame promoted defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman to replace Kelly.
