Former Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill resigned early Wednesday due to health concerns. We wish Kill nothing but the best, and those within the college football community clearly do, too. Social media has been flooded today with positive vibes for Kill.
But one message stands out in particular. Minnesota walk-on Cavonte Johnson posted a heartwarming message on Facebook in honor of his former coach, who offered Johnson an opportunity when nobody else would. Check it out:
Want to know what Jerry Kill meant to these players and the type of guy he was, ask walk-on Cavonte Johnson. pic.twitter.com/8ugZxnEeP5— Ryan Burns (@RyanBurnsMN) October 28, 2015
It’s clear that Kill impacted many lives in a positive way. Here’s to hoping for a speedy recovery.
