Tyler Kelly
Position: Director of Player Development
Experience: 1st Year

Director of Player Development Tyler Kelly will enter his second season as part of the Green Bay men's basketball program in 2017-18, after joining the Phoenix in summer of 2016. Kelly's efforts helped Green Bay to a 12-6 Horizon League record and another postseason apperance. 

In Kelly's role, he is responsible for player management, program operations and will assist in setting up on campus recruiting and coordinating official and unofficial visits for potential recruits.

“We are excited to have Tyler join our program for this season. He was a key part of the success we had during my time at Florida Southern and it was like having another coach on the team when he was on the floor. His experience of how I want to run a program both on and off the court will be an easy transition for us,” head coach Linc Darner said.

Kelly, a native of Pickerington, Ohio, most recently served as an assistant coach at Florida Southern during the 2015-16 season, where he also enjoyed a standout four-year career under Darner during his time with the Mocs. He was a four-year letterwinnner and was a key cog on the school's 2015 NCAA Division II National Championship team.

“I'm very excited to be here and work for the coach I played for in college. I'm ready for the season to start and be a part of this great program and I am eager to learn from everyone on this staff and continue to grow as a coach,” Kelly said.

Kelly earned his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Florida Southern College in 2015, where he also made frequent appearance on the school and league's Honor Roll. He will assist Darner and his staff with all the day-to-day activities dealing with the program and will also have a key role on the road with team and during practices and games.

In his four seasons with the Mocs, Kelly helped lead the program to four consecutive 20-plus win campaigns, including winning a school record 36 games during the 2014-15 national championship season. In addition, the Mocs also played in four NCAA Tournaments, made two trips to the Elite Eight in 2013 and 2015, won four consecutive Sunshine State Conference Tournament titles and three straight SSC regular season titles. Kelly was a part of 109 wins in his Moccasin career.

Kelly closed out his Moccasin career fourth on the school's all-time assist chart with 498 assists and was tied for second in games played with his former teammate, two-time All-American guard Kevin Capers as they both played 131 games in four seasons. Additionally, Kelly, who started 120 of his 131 career games, finished with 982 career points, pulled down 402 rebounds, collected 132 steals and shot 38 percent from the field (289-for-752) and 34 percent from the 3-point line (159-for-463).
