Minnesota's Fleck 'saddened' by criticism from ex-coach

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota football coach P.J. Fleck says he's "saddened" by critical remarks from former coach Jerry Kill suggesting Fleck cares more about himself than his players.

Kill, who coached the Gophers from 2011-15, said on Sirius XM radio this week that Fleck's "ego gets carried away" and he's "about himself" rather than his players.

Kill, now the athletic director at Southern Illinois , acknowledged he was bothered that Fleck talked about needing to "completely change the culture" when he took over the program in 2017.
