Jerry Kill will coach the Gophers from the sidelines this football season, according to a report from Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune.
Kill coached primarily from the press box at the end of last season. He missed a game in Ann Arbor, Mich., in early October because of seizures. He then took a brief leave to focus on treating his epilepsy.
He was on the sidelines at the end of the Gophers bowl loss to Syracuse in the Texas Bowl, but otherwise the spent the final seven games in the press box.
According to the report, Kill said if there needs to be adjustments, his staff has been together a long time.
Here's an excerpt from Christensen's report:
"I'll be on the sideline [this fall]," Kill said in response to a question from the audience. "That's who I am, and I think that's best for our team. However, if we need to adjust something, [the coaches have] all been together a long time."
