Gophers football coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and did not travel with the team for the game at Michigan, according to a University of Minnesota athletics department statement.
Kill, who has epilepsy, had not missed an entire game because of his condition. The third-year coach suffered a halftime seizure and missed the second half of a win against Western Illinois on Sept. 14 at TCF Bank Stadium. That was his third in-game seizure while with the Gophers.
“Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is at home in Minneapolis and will not be on the sideline for today’s game against Michigan,” Gophers team spokesman Paul Rovnak wrote in the release. “Coach Kill was not feeling well on Friday morning and decided to meet the team in Ann Arbor on Saturday. He then suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and will remain at home in Minnesota for today’s game.”
