Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill and redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Jimmy Gjere announced today that Gjere is ending his football career due to the return of concussion-like symptoms.

Upon the announcement, Gjere, who started five games last year tweeted, "Humbled by all of the support I have gotten in the last couple of days. Thankful for great friends, family, and Gopher family #ski-u-mah."
