Jerry Kill, coach at Northern Illinois University, will be the next head coach for the University of Minnesota Gopher football team and is expected to be introduced at a press conference at TCF Bank Stadium Monday, according to the Star Tribune.
Kill, 49, has been a Football Bowl Subdivision coach for three seasons, according to the Pioneer Press. He led the Northern Illinois Huskies to a 10-3 season, claiming a No. 25 ranking before a 26-21 loss against Miami on Friday.
Kill also led the Huskies to a 34-23 victory over the Gophers earlier this season, according to the Star Tribune.
The Gophers' last head coach, Tim Brewster, was fired mid-season after leading the Gophers to six consecutive losses, leaving the team at 1-6. The Gophers ended their season without Brewster at 3-9.
