DEKALB, Ill. (AP) -Jerry Kill is the new football coach at Northern Illinois, less than a week after he had Southern Illinois in the FCS semifinals.

Southern Illinois plays in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly I-AA. The Salukis lost 20-17 to Delaware last Friday.
The Huskies finished 2-10 this season in the Mid-American Conference.
