It takes a special kind of character in a head coach to produce wins on the football field at Minnesota. Just when you think the program has turned things around, it seems the Gophers go back into their holes in Big Ten play. But Jerry Kill is looking to have his program continue to move forward in his third year on the job, and he wants every one of his players competing at a higher level in 2013.
“I think competition is always good, and from the secondary to the offensive line, it’s not only competition for us as coaches, it’s building depth,” Kill said in a conference call with the media on Wednesday. “We need as much depth as you can have, because the bottom line is the good teams in the Big Ten [are] going to have some depth. And you have to grow older.”
