The University of Minnesota announced this morning that Head Football Coach Jerry Kill will resign effective immediately. According to WCCO in Minneapolis, health issues have forced Kill's decision to walk away immediately.

Kill has battled epilepsy for sometime now. He has missed time in the past due to seizures and complications from his condition.

Offensive Coordinator Tracy Claeys will assume the head coaching duties as the Golden Gophers prepare for a night game this Saturday, hosting Michigan.
