Since Mark Dantonio took over at Michigan State following the 2006 regular season, Ted Gill has served as the Spartans’ defensive line coach. For three years prior to that, Gill was Dantonio’s line coach at Cincinnati.
In 2013, however, that professional relationship will be no more.
In a press release, MSU confirmed that Gill won’t return for the 2013 season. No reason was given for the unexpected “parting of ways,” and a replacement for Gill has yet to be determined.
“Ted Gill’s contract runs through March 31, 2013, and will not be renewed. He has been a contributing member of my coaching staff for nine years, including the last six seasons here at Michigan State. I wish Ted the best in his future endeavors.”
In addition to his time with Dantonio, Gill’s 42-year coaching career included stops at Utah, North Carolina and Iowa. He served as defensive coordinator at Oklahoma State for one season (1995).
Gill also spent three years (1996-98) as the Carolina Panthers’ line coach.
