Jerry Kill named new offensive coordinator at Rutgers

(KFVS) -

The Rutgers University head football coach, Chris Ash, named Jerry Kill as the new offensive coordinator on Monday, December 19.

Kill, who will also coach quarterbacks, spent five seasons as head coach at Minnesota, earning Big Ten Coach of the Year honors in 2014.

He spent seven years on the Saluki sidelines where he was in charge of the football program at Southern Illinois University. He compiled a 55-32 record.

His record over his final five seasons with SIU was 50-14 and included five consecutive NCAA FCS Playoff appearances.

He went on to serve as head coach at Northern Illinois University and head coach at Minnesota where he recruited eight players that were selected in the NFL draft, including four picks in 2015.

Kill stepped away from coaching briefly, serving as Associate Athletics Director for Administration at Kansas State since May. He was also the chief administrator for the K-State football program.
