MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Jerry Kill is sticking with what works.

Kill says he will remain in the coaching booth for the Golden Gophers' game against No. 16 Wisconsin on Saturday. Kill has watched every game from the booth since he returned from a leave of absence to address his epilepsy. And the Gophers (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) have won all four of them.

Kill says the vantage point allows him to see the field a little better. He also enjoys being able to more easily communicate with his coaching staff. Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys will continue to coach from the sideline.

Kill also says the Gophers are monitoring a knee injury to starting receiver Derek Engel. Engel was injured in practice on Sunday and likely will miss the Badgers game.
