The longest-tenured member of the Red Foxes' coaching staff, Tom Kelly is in his 29th year on the Marist sidelines. Kelly will continue to work with the Red Foxes' kickers.
Under the tutelage of Kelly, kicker Jason Myers has established himself as one of the best at his position in the PFL. Myers has been an Honorable Mention All-PFL selection the previous two seasons, and led the league in touchbacks both years. Last season, he set a school record with a 49-yard field goal at Davidson.
Punter Kevin Pauly, a fifth-year senior in 2011, wrapped up a prolific career. Pauly was a two-time Honorable Mention All-PFL choice. In 2009, he set the then-program record for longest field goal (46 yards). In 2008, Pauly set a Marist program record by averaging 41.0 yards per punt. Pauly also tied a school record with a 76-yard punt in 2010.
In 2005, Bradley Rowe set a Division I-AA school record with 36 successful extra point conversions in a single season.
Kelly himself was a placekicker for the Red Foxes, kicking over the course of four seasons before his 1975 graduation. In 1976, Kelly received a tryout with the New York Giants.
Kelly lives in Wappingers Falls, N.Y. with his two sons, Brian and Patrick.
