EKU Elevates Brady Keeran to Tight Ends Coach

Eastern Kentucky University’s football program, under the leadership of head coach Walt Wells, announced the promotion of Brady Keeran to the position of tight ends coach for the Colonels.

Keeran’s journey with EKU began in 2023 when he joined as a senior analyst primarily focused on the offense. Now, he steps into a more specialized role, leveraging his experience and expertise to guide the tight ends unit and contribute to special teams.

Coach Wells expressed his excitement about Keeran’s promotion, highlighting his deep understanding of the offensive system and his demonstrated enthusiasm for the game.

During the 2023 season, Keeran played a significant role in EKU’s offensive success, which included leading the United Athletic Conference (UAC) in total offense with 4,811 yards, averaging 437.4 yards per game. The Colonels also boasted the best red zone offense in the UAC, scoring points on 92% of trips inside the 25-yard line.

As Keeran steps into his new role, he inherits talented players like Hunter Brown, a standout tight end who earned unanimous All-UAC first team honors in 2023.

Originally from Ashland, Kentucky, Keeran brings a wealth of coaching experience, having worked with multiple programs before joining EKU. His previous roles include serving as a special teams quality control coach at Memphis, an offensive graduate assistant at Buffalo, and a special teams and offensive graduate assistant at Murray State. Keeran’s coaching journey began at Kentucky, where he worked as a special teams and defensive assistant, contributing to the Wildcats’ success on the field and in recruiting efforts.

With Keeran’s promotion, Eastern Kentucky University looks to strengthen its coaching staff and continue its pursuit of excellence on the football field.
