Two days after Jerry Kill suffered another seizure, this one coming at halftime last November and sidelining him for the rest of the Michigan State game, his boss spoke up.
Gophers athletics director Norwood Teague told the Pioneer Press he would look at three areas in the offseason to help his football coach better deal with his epilepsy:
— He hoped Kill would find a way to manage his seizures from a “medicine standpoint” and “lifestyle standpoint.”
— He hoped people around Kill — coaches and administration — could help him manage his health better.
— He hoped to delegate some of Kill’s duties to other coaches on his staff.
As the Gophers have prepared for the 2013 season, which will open Thursday night against Nevada Las Vegas, Teague acknowledges that he likes what Kill has done to prepare himself, too.
He likes it a lot.
