The former Republic of Ireland manager led the side for two years but he is best remembered for his time with the underage teams of the 1990s.
Under Kerr, he led two different teams to European glory in 1998, along with a third-place finish at the Under-20 World Cup the previous year.
While the Dubliner was at the forefront of those glories, he also set the trend in football fashion. The 1990s wasn't a golden era in fashion, but the former St. Pats' boss bucked the trend.
Here are some of the simple reasons why we think Kerr was on the top of his game back them.
Even Real Madrid never made all white look as classy as Brian Kerr
If you have a cap like that, and some Umbro shorts, who needs a top?
Brian Kerr perfected the 'windswept look' before it was even a thing
Nobody rocked a tracksuit like him...
Or a jacket.
Why bother closing those buttons on a polo t-shirt?
He wasn't afraid to get those trousers dirty.
'Swimming pool chic'
A bona fide 1990s fashion icon.
