Thank you, Coach Kill. https://t.co/Pmq6Bl7qyX— Minnesota Gophers (@GopherSports) October 31, 2015
Minnesota honored recently retired football coach Jerry Kill during Saturday night's rivalry game vs. No. 15 Michigan.
During a timeout midway through the first quarter, the school aired a video tribute on the big board to the coach who retired Wednesday due to health concerns. The fans loved it, giving Kill, who was not in attendance, a standing ovation and chanting "Jerry! Jerry!"
The video included highlights and behind-the-scenes moments from Kill's Minnesota tenure, which lasted four-plus seasons and included a 29-29 clip.
Watch the full tribute in the tweet above.
During halftime, the Minnesota marching band had another tribute, spelling out "Jerry."

And before the game, quarterback Mitch Leidner carried out the "Jerrysota" flag.
