Randy Edsall was fired mid-season and Tim Beckman was let go just before the season started. And now this:
Coach Kill announced today that he is retiring effective immediately due to health reasons. Tracy Claeys has been named interim head coach.— Minnesota Football (@GopherFootball) October 28, 2015
