Greg Forest continues his 17-year relationship with the head coach as quarterbacks coach at Cincinnati.
Forest spent the 2006 campaign wearing the tag of assistant head coach to Kelly. He served three seasons at Central Michigan spending one season each with the receivers, running backs, and tight ends.
Forest worked primarily with the Chippewa running backs in 2005, molding a 1,000-yard rusher who went on to earn freshman all-America status from Sporting News and Rivals.com.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Forest coached wide receivers for 11 years at Grand Valley State, mentoring the top three receivers in GVSU history. All three garnered all-America recognition.
A 1992 graduate of Ohio Northern University, Forest prepped at Grandview Heights High School (1982).
Forest first went to Grand Valley State in 1991 and then served as an assistant coach at Capital University in 1992 before returning to GVSU in 1993. During his tenure, the Lakers qualified for the Division II Playoffs six times and won national championships in 2002 and 2003.
