Kill’s decision came during a key period of recruiting, but Claeys insisted, “We’re not losing ground.”

Adam Weber, who played for the Gophers from 2007 to 2010 and is the school’s career passing leader, applauded Kill and the university for taking this latest step.

“It’s nice to know that they are taking this very seriously and that they have his best interest in mind,” Weber said. “The fact he’s taking a leave allows him to focus on his health, which is very, very important. It’s hard to be the best football coach you can be if you’re unhealthy and you’re worried about other things. As sad as it is to see this happening, I think it’s best for Coach Kill and hopefully the whole football program.”

Claeys said there won’t be drastic changes without Kill. The two will keep in touch via cellphone. The team’s routines will stay the same.

“We’re going to miss him as a friend and our biggest fan,” Claeys said. “But besides that, we’ll be fine.”
