Bible, 64, has tutored current NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan and Mike Glennon.

Kelly’s staff includes Roy Manning as outside linebackers and special teams coaches; Vince Oghobaase as defensive line coach; Jerry Azzinaro as defensive coordinator; Paul Rhoads as defensive backs coach; Don Pellum as inside linebackers coach; Jimmie Dougherty as wide receivers coach; DeShaun Foster as running backs coach; Hank Fraley as offensive line coach; and Angus McClure as tight ends coach.
