Dick Kelley gave his heart to Boston College, now the school is giving back

Nearly 15 years after Chris Herren flamed out of Boston College, having compiled more failed drug tests than games played, he finally celebrated a year of sobriety. One of his first calls that day in 2009 was to Dick Kelley, Boston College’s longtime assistant athletic director for media relations. “He was the guy calling me into his office when I was struggling on campus and failing drug tests to find out why,” Herren said.
