    Minnesota hires NIU's Jerry Kill

    Per ESPN's Joe Schad.

    Good hire IMO.

    good hire, but I hope the interim coach gets a job somewhere because it looked like he got a lot out of the players

    NIU fans never seemed real thrilled with Mr. Kill.

    "******** baby red-neck" was a common name-call

    Re: Minnesota hires NIU's Jerry Kill

    I don't get this hire. They need someone to come in and win now so they look to the MAC? Jerry seems like a good guy and I hope he does well, but can he Recruit at that level?

    Hello, I'm coach Kill. Sounds like a bad James Bond villain.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Minnesota hires NIU's Jerry Kill

    Not a good hire, IMO. I think they could have done much better with the facilities they have. Randy Shannon and Mike Leach were both out there. Maybe they declined but there are others I would put ahead of Kill.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Minnesota hires NIU's Jerry Kill

    I just think he's a complete 180 degrees from what Brewster was/is, so in that respect, it's a good hire.

    Great hire. Coaches basic, physical football. Will get Minnesota out of the mess they're in.

    Re: Minnesota hires NIU's Jerry Kill

    This is a good hire. Gopher fans had incredibly unrealistic expectations as to who they were going to hire, although Leach would have been awesome. I think he might rub people the wrong way, but he'd win games.

    Kill seems like a Big 10 type guy. I think he'll get them to a respectable level year in and year out.

    I hope that interim guy get's a job too, I liked him. Kill will do way better than Brewster.
