"I wasn't going to do it at first then changed my mind," Kill said. "Gary had a lot to do with that just talking to me. It was a gut-wrenching thing. You can't find two better people that I respect in college football than those two."

Nobody will ever understand, this is my best friend that I've known for all my years of coaching I'm working with and I'm in the state of Texas, which is only about five and a half hours from where I grew up," Kill said. "I wouldn't do what I'm doing for anybody. It just happened to be Justin [Fuente] and Gary Patterson. I would work for those guys any day of the week. It was a hard decision."
