Jerry Kill is Retiring due to Health Concerns

Jerry Kill is retiring due to health concerns. He was a head football coach during 23 football seasons.

During his coaching career, Jerry Kill was very loyal to his coaching staff. He coached five seasons at the University of Minnesota.

Jerry Kill was the coach that came after Tim Brewster. 

Kill had a record of 29-29 while at Minnesota and his teams qualified for three bowl games.
Jerry Kill originally retired due to health concerns in the midst of the 2015 football season. 

Following his retirement, Jerry Kill's Defensive Coordinator Tracey Claeys became head football coach. Claeys was then followed by PJ Fleck. 

In March of 2016 Jerry Kill said that PJ Fleck had "walked into a gold mine" by taking the Minnesota job. 

Jerry Kill unretired the following spring in May of 2016 when he accepted a position with Kansas State as Associate Athletic Director.

Seven months later, in December 2016, Jerry Kill was named the Offensive Coordinator at Rutgers, a position he has now announced he is retiring from due to health concerns.

From a personal standpoint, I wouldn't publicly say a bad word about Coach Jerry Kill, who will be missed by many.
