Coach Jerry Kill Celebrates Minnesota Win in Odd Fashion

This past Saturday the Minnesota Golden Gophers played their in-conference rivals, the Iowa Hawkeyes, for the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy.  From the start of the game, the Golden Gophers showed dominance over the visiting Hawkeyes, riding a 35-7 lead into halftime.  Offensively, the Golden Gophers were scoring at will, running up and down the field behind redshirt sophomore quarterback Mitch Leidner, who finished the game 10/13 with 138 yards passing and 4 touchdowns.  Of the 4 touchdowns, 3 were caught by the redshirt sophomore tight end Maxx Williams.  The Golden Gophers would continue the slaughter through the second half, winning the game by a final score of 51-14.  The Gophers would regain possession of the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy.

What happened in the  Golden Gopher locker room after the game was wild.  Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was as fired up as his players after the big win, so what better way to celebrate it than to dance with the team.  That’s right, watch out Dancing with the StarsAfter watching these dance moves you may want to consider Coach Kill as a candidate for your show.

But this isn’t the first time that Coach Kill has got down after a big win.  Here is a throwback to last season when the Golden Gophers beat Penn State 24-10.

Watch out Coach Dantonio, you’ve got some competition for best dancing coach in the Big Ten.

Who do you think has the better dance moves? Coach Kill or Coach Dantonio?

  1. This is something that separates college from the pros. You do not see these type of reactions as much after a big win in the NFL. The Michigan State victory dance after their Rose Bowl win is something I will always remember, especially the coaches and school officials.


  2. I would have to give it to Coach Kill as the better dancer. Moving outside the Big 10 though I think you have to throw in Kliff Kingsbury into the mix. I agree with Tony in that this type of celebration and passion is something that I think is missing from the NFL. Yes the coaches and the executives are happy but you would never see Robert Kraft down in the locker room dancing in the locker room. I really enjoyed this post because it does highlight how involved the coaches are at the college level.
