The University of Minnesota Athletics Director Norwood Teague announced today that the university has restructured Head Football Coach Jerry Kill's contract. The contract, which adds one year, runs through the 2018-2019 season and will pay Kill $2.1 million for the 2014-2015 season.
"Coach Kill is proving his model works here at the University of Minnesota," said Teague. "It is right to support him as he builds a program that will make the state of Minnesota proud."
The Gophers finished 8-5 in Kill's third season at Minnesota and played in their second straight bowl game.
