"It's been really special to get an opportunity to come back and thank them," Kelly said of his former players. "I didn't get that opportunity. It was taken from me. The circumstances were what they were."
"I think it's a mature team in the way they handle themselves," Kelly said. "They know they have to do the little things the right way. Each week has required our team to find different ways to win. I like the fact that our guys, regardless of the situation, can adapt and adjust and find ways to win."
