Jerry Kill is featured on ESPN by Ivan Maisel. Very good article!
Kill has won with good X's and O's, but he also puts body and soul into the team. Take the latter. The other night, his wife Rebecca baked sugar cookies, and she and Jerry took them over to center Jon Christenson, a former walk-on who broke his leg and is out for the season.
"He has a tough demeanor," senior free safety Brock Vereen said of Kill, "but at the end of the day, he's very persistent about showing how much he cares about us."
