Cancer survivor Kill begins new journey at Minnesota
CHICAGO (AP) -- Nearly six years removed from a battle with kidney cancer, Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is in good health and starting a new job in the Big Ten.
"I'm cancer-free," the first-year Gophers coach said Friday at the second and final Big Ten media day. "I don't know if you ever win that battle, but I am coaching and I'm blessed to do that."
Diagnosed with kidney cancer in late 2005 while at Southern Illinois, Kill underwent surgery and follow-up treatment.
