Report: Jerry Kill is on the move again, this time to TCU
Jerry Kill is adding another career stop to his resume.
According to a report from 247Sports, Kill is joining Gary Patterson’s staff at TCU after a one-year stop at Virginia Tech. Kill is expected to be named the special assistant to the head coach, a position he held with the Hokies, as well.
Per HornedFrogBlitz, Kill will have a primary focus on the offensive side of the ball. He will not be one of the team’s 10 assistants, but will be involved in coach evaluations, player evaluations, play calls and schemes.
This will be Kill’s sixth stop since 2015, when he resigned as the head coach at Minnesota. Since stepping down in Minneapolis for health reasons, here’s a list of the jobs Kill has taken:
- 2016: Kansas State associate athletic director
- 2017: Rutgers offensive coordinator
- 2018-19: Southern Illinois interim athletic director/athletic director
- 2019: Virginia Tech special assistant to the head coach
- 2020: TCU special assistant to the head coach
Kill hasn’t been active as an assistant coach since his lone season as the Rutgers offensive coordinator in 2017. The 58-year-old former head coach has still remained involved with the game as much as possible.
TCU finished the 2019 season with a 5-7 record, dropping six of those games by one possession.
