New Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill has decided to keep two members of the previous staff.
According to several reports, and now confirmed by WCCO sources, the University of Minnesota has chosen Jerry Kill as the new head coach of the football team.
The Minnesota football program bottomed out again this season, with the firing of head coach Tim Brewster and a losing streak that reached nine games by the first weekend in November.
Minnesota Vikings running back coach Eric Bieniemy is an early candidate for the open head coaching job at Colorado, his alma mater.
Tim Brewster arrived at Minnesota in 2007 promising to bring the Golden Gophers back to the Rose Bowl, to heights not seen on campus in more than a generation.
