If the creators of the "Meet The Parents" trilogy are looking to reboot the franchise then they need look no further than the forthcoming Kelly-Cowher wedding for source material. In the role of the ornery, hard-to-please father will be former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher.
Former Duke basketball star Ryan Kelly, who was projected as a second-round pick in the upcoming NBA Draft at NBADraft.net, recently tweeted confirmation that he and Cowher's daughter, Lindsay, are engaged.

The 6' 11" Kelly and the coach's daughter have been dating since high school, according to The Sporting News. Both attended Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, N.C.
As noted by For The Win, Kelly won't be the first high-profile athlete to marry into the Cowher clan. Lindsay's older sister is married to Carolina Hurricanes right wing Kevin Westgarth.
