When it comes to Jerry Kill, he often leaves just as quickly and under just as much fire as when he arrived, and here we are again. The former Minnesota Gophers head coach is stepping down as head football coach at New Mexico State University.

Jerry Kill steps down as head coach at New Mexico State

The Aggies enjoyed one of the best seasons in the history of their football program, in 2023, but it ended in a ball of fire, with an epic Jerry Kill rant, after NMSU was blown out in the New Mexico Bowl 37-10 by Fresno State.

They were supposed to practice in the University of New Mexico’s indoor practice facility but weren’t allowed to because their quarterback pissed on the field as part of a rivalry beef weeks earlier. That made Jerry mad and when Jerry is made, everyone knows about it.

Why did Kill step down and what’s next?

To be clear, we do not know exactly why Kill stepped down, whether it was related to what happened at the New Mexico Bowl or otherwise. When he stepped down as head coach at Minnesota, it was because of epileptic seizures that he could not get under control.

Let’s hope that has nothing to do with why he stepped down from the same post for the Aggies. According to 247Sports, it’s possible Jerry could be on his way to Vanderbilt to serve as a special assistant.
