Coach Jerry Kill was named head coach of the U of MN football program.
A highlight of the 2011 season was a win over Big Ten rival Iowa. The American Football Association named Kill the Region 3 Coach of the Year in 2012.
Coach Kill took a leave of absence after seizures prevented him from traveling to a Michigan game. Media called for Kill’s resignation and suggested a person with epilepsy could not handle such a position. Over 2,000 people connected to epilepsy rallied to show support before the San Jose State game.
Coach and Rebecca Kill announce the Coach Kill Chasing Dreams Epilepsy Fund.
Coach Kill was awarded the 2014 Big Ten Coach of the Year.
Coach and Rebecca’s commitment to helping kids with epilepsy chase their dreams is unparalleled, despite his abrupt retirement on October 28, 2015. They are regular visitors to Camp Oz and their fund provides classroom education for kids with epilepsy to curb bullying and foster understanding of epilepsy.
