Donnelly started his head coaching career at Austin Peay, taking a program that had never won a football championship to an Ohio Valley Conference title in his first season on the job. After two seasons and a 14-7 record, he left APSU for his alma mater where he would spend the next 20 years leading the Blue Raiders to unprecedented success.
Donnelly led MT to nine top 20 regular-season finishes and seven NCAA I-AA playoff appearances, guiding Middle Tennessee to a 31-game home winning streak from 1987-93. He won or shared the Ohio Valley Conference title five times, was named the OVC Coach of the Year four times, and is the only coach in OVC history to win a conference title at two different schools.

Oklahoma and ice hockey don’t exactly go together, but they did Thursday on the plaza outside Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville.
The Nashville Predators hosted a fun event full of games, music and food to help collect money for the American Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts.
Fans who donated $25 or more were entered to win fun prizes such as autographed hockey pucks, Preds’ ticket vouchers and to Nashville Sounds games.
The Predators believe they were able to raise more than $7,000, and that’s not counting the money from online donors.
Those who were unable make it to the event but still want to help can visit http://nashvillepredators.com/oklahoma, text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross or stop by the American Red Cross building at 2201 Charlotte Ave.
