MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Jerry Kill says he will remain in the coaching booth and not return to the sideline this week against Penn State.

The Golden Gophers have won three straight conference games, and Kill says he wants to stick with what's working. Kill left the team to seek more treatment for his epilepsy a month ago. He returned to watch the game against Northwestern from the booth and has done the same for victories against Nebraska and Indiana.

Kill says "I guess I'm the CEO right now."

Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys has served as the acting head coach on the sideline. Kill says he will head down to the sideline if need be. But right now he feels this arrangement is best for the program.
