LSU soccer coach Brian Kelly was accused of feigning a Southern accent when he appeared at the Tigers men’s basketball game Wednesday night.

Kelly addressed the crowd and seemed to have a different accent in her voice, with at least one reporter breaking her voice from her farewell address to the Notre Dame players to how she spoke to the crowd when she arrived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL PLAYOFF 2021: 6 TEAMS TO WATCH DURING THE WEEK OF THE CONFERENCE TITLE

College football fans immediately began taunting the newly appointed coach.

Kelly was born in Everett, Massachusetts, and raised in an Irish Catholic family. His father, Paul, was a councilman in Boston and Kelly himself served on Gary Hart’s presidential campaign in 1988.

There doesn’t seem to be any southern roots in Kelly.

He began his career as a college football coach at Grand Valley State University in Michigan as a graduate assistant and defensive backs coach, eventually becoming defensive coordinator and later head coach. He led the team to two NCAA Division II championships.

His first FBS coaching job came with Central Michigan before moving to Cincinnati and then Notre Dame. It was only this week that he had his first real taste of the South when he took the money and ran to LSU.
