subsequently won titles in 2008 2011 2014 2015 2016 2017 2019 and 2020 9 Pulaski s four consecutive titles from 2014 to 2017 made them only the fourth team in Arkansas high school history to do so and the first since Barton High School from 1986 to 1989 1 Prior to the start of the 2020 season Kelley was listed as having the 15th highest all time winning percentage among high school football coaches 10 Kelley was named the USA Today High School Coach of the Year in 2016 and was inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame in April 2021 11 Bill Belichick said of Kelley in December 2020 that he was probably the top high school coach in the country and mentioned that he had great respect for coach Kelley 12 Kelley s strategy has been the subject of reports by The New York Times Sports Illustrated The Wall Street Journal and Time 3 and was included in a chapter of Scorecasting a book by Toby Moskowitz and L Jon Wertheim 13 In an interview shortly after he was hired by Presbyterian Kelley told Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports that he was most proud of his offensive acumen and noted that his play calling style was as heavily data driven as his more publicized special teams idiosyncrasies Kelley considers his offensive philosophy intermediate which he defines as geared heavily toward midrange passes in front of the safeties with a high percentage of pass plays designed to generate yards after the catch According to Thamel 14 The intermediate offense combines what Kelley considers the two hardest things to do in football play pass coverages and tackle in space He estimates that if a quarterback can throw 40 yards that leaves seven men guarding an area that s 52 yards wide and 40 yards deep That s 2 000 square yards that seven guys have to defend he said That s almost 30 yard squares You know how hard it is Presbyterian Edit Following the conclusion of the 2020 season there were some ideas that led to speculation that Kelley could be considered for a Division I job namely the head coaching position at Kansas 15 a job Kelley supposedly said he would accept for 90 000 per win 1 Ultimately Kelley was hired as the 16th head football coach at Presbyterian College on May 6 2021 6 16 He will take over the Blue Hose program for their first full season in the Pioneer Football League after a shortened 2021 spring season under Tommy Spangler 17
