Jeff Horton not Offered a Position, Thomas Hammock Retained

Jeff Horton will not be a part of the Gopher football program moving forward. Horton has a chance to do what very, very few college coaches have done: leave his job in good standing with the fans. Most head coaches are either let go, or leave for greener pastures. Horton will always be remembered for the season-ending turnaround that he orchestrated.

Thomas Hammock, meanwhile, is reported in the same article to have a job with Jerry Kill's staff. Hammock is widely considered a rising star in the coaching world, and has a reputation as a talented recruiter. Down the stretch, he also exhibited great skill and creativity as offensive coordinator.
