Tim Kelly is in his first season as tight ends coach with the Houston Texans after spending the previous three campaigns as offensive quality control coach. He also assisted Mike Devlin with the offensive line in 2016.

Kelly helped the Texans win back-to-back AFC South division championships in 2015-16 and post three straight winning seasons over the past three years – both firsts in franchise history. In Kelly's first three years with the team, the Texans ranked third in the AFC and sixth in the NFL in rushing.

Last season, the offensive line paved the way for RB Lamar Miller to become just the fourth player in team history to eclipse 1,000 yards on the ground despite starting six different combinations and playing just one full game with both starting tackles. After finishing 9-7, the Texans won their Wild Card matchup with the Oakland Raiders and advanced to the Divisional Round for the third time in franchise history.

In 2015, Houston claimed its first AFC South division championship since 2012 and became the first NFL team since 1950 to earn a trip to the postseason with four different starting quarterbacks winning at least one regular season game.

The 2014 Texans ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (135.1) and eighth in average time of possession (30:53). QB Ryan Fitzpatrick started 12 games and posted single-season career highs in passer rating (95.3) and completion percentage (63.1).

Kelly came to Houston from Penn State, where he served as a graduate assistant under Head Coach Bill O’Brien, having held the same position at Ball State in 2011.

Before he went to Ball State, Kelly was the defensive coordinator, defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Minnesota State-Moorhead for the 2010 season.

Kelly spent the 2008-09 seasons at Illinois-Wesleyan, where he was the defensive line coach for the 2009 CCIW Championship team that ranked ninth among all defenses at the NCAA Division-III level. He also coached two first-team all-conference selections.

Kelly played defensive tackle at Eastern Illinois, starting all 48 games in his collegiate career and serving as the team’s captain in 2007. He was named to the Capital One Academic All-District V Team in 2006 and 2007.

A native of Chicago Heights, Ill., Kelly starred at Marian Catholic High School where he is a member of the East Suburban Catholic Conference Hall of Fame. He received his bachelor’s degree in sports administration from Eastern Illinois in 2008 and his master’s degree in sport management from Illinois State in 2010.

Kelly and his wife, Katie, have two daughters, Norah and Quinn.
