Garden City Community College assistant football coach Jeff Kelly has resigned, the college announced in a press release Wednesday afternoon.

"We are appreciative of the service(s) Coach Kelly offered Garden City Community College," Sports Information Director and Assistant Athletic Director Dan Delgado said in the release.

Kelly was the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for the Broncbusters in 2013 under head coach Matt Miller.

The release also said that Kelly was offered the same position at Fort Scott Community College, but at the time of the release, it was not clear if Kelly had accepted that position.

A telephone call and text message to Kelly was not returned. A telephone call to Miller also was not returned.

In addition, the athletic director at Fort Scott was unavailable for comment, and a telephone call to Fort Scott head coach Curtis Horton also was not returned.

Kelly led one of the top defenses in the Jayhawk Conference in 2013, holding opponents to 24.9 points per game, third best in the conference and 29th in the NJCAA. It was also third best in the KJCCC in yards per game allowed at 289.2, and 21st in the nation.

The college will immediately begin its search for a defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, the release said.

Kelly was a standout linebacker for the Broncbusters in 1995-96, and then starred at Kansas State University.
