Former Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has been hired as an associate athletic director at Kansas State, the school announced Tuesday. 

Kill, 54, resigned from his position at Minnesota during the 2015 season due to issues related to epileptic seizures. He turned down an offer to work in an advisor position with the Golden Gophers athletics department.

A Kansas-native, Kill recorded a 152–99 record in 22 years as a head coach at the Division I and II levels. 

“We are thrilled that Jerry and Rebecca are coming home to join the K-State family,” Kansas State athletics director John Currie said. “He is ready to move into a new chapter of his life and professional career, and his experience as a former head coach will be a terrific addition to our staff. We look forward to the perspective and mentoring he will provide our coaches and student-athletes as we continue toward our vision of a Model Intercollegiate Athletics Program.”
