Minnesota Golden Gophers Roster 2019 Gophers Roster

Head Coach: P.J. Fleck        2017 Salary: $3,500,000        Offensive Coordinator: Kirk Ciarrocca       Defensive Coordinator: Robb Smith         

Stadium: TCF Bank Stadium       Surface: Turf        City: Minneapolis        State: Minnesota

P.J. Fleck has established a reputation as a master program builder from his previous track record. Therefore, Gophers’ fans should have some optimism for what is to come. The question is how long he will take to turn the program around and whether he will get the time and latitude to do so.

Last season, the Gophers barely missed a bowl game, finishing with five wins. While the defense was stout, the offense was towards the bottom nationally in several statistical indicators. Minnesota especially struggled in the passing game, averaging only 126 yards per contest. Although the Gophers were primarily a running team, the offense averaged less than 200 yards per game on the ground. The offense does not figure to be much improved this season as the Gophers will be welcoming a new quarterback this season. It is unclear who the starting quarterback is as there is nobody on the roster who has any experience.

Last season, the Gophers were strong against the pass and did not allow much by way of points. The defense will have to be strong in 2018 as the offense will likely struggle. The Gophers will have to tighten up against the run in order to get its offense the time it needs on the field.

The Gophers are known for beating up on their non-conference foes and struggling when it comes time for Big 10 play. This season figures to be more of the same as Minnesota does not have the personnel necessary to make noise in its conference.
