Bills great Jim Kelly got his start as quarterback for the Miami Hurricanes, and next month, he will be honored at his alma mater. Kelly will serve as Grand Marshal of The U’s 2014 Homecoming ceremonies and will be an honorary captain for the game against UNC on November 1.
“The University of Miami was and remains an important part of my life,” Kelly said. “My family and I are honored and we look forward to being Grand Marshal of the Homecoming Parade and honorary captain for the homecoming game.”
Miami has declared the game the “#KellyTough Green Out,” asking all fans to play a role in greening out Sun Life Stadium.
“We’re honored that Jim Kelly will be returning to campus as the Grand Marshal of Homecoming ceremonies,” head football coach Al Golden said. “Jim is the definition of a Miami Hurricane. He is a winner and a leader, and his successful fight against cancer serves as an inspiration to all of us.”
