Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill
was released from a hospital Sunday after suffering a seizure following
Saturday's game against Northwestern.
The seizure occurred in Kill's private locker room at TCF Bank Stadium after
he had completed his postgame press conference. He was immediately attended to
by team medical personnel and was then transported by ambulance to a hospital
as a precaution.
"Coach Kill was discharged from the hospital this morning," said team
physician Dr. Pat Smith in a school statement. "He was evaluated yesterday and
this morning and all tests confirm that he remains in excellent health. His
only concern is his team and staff, and he is excited to resume his normal
coaching duties as Minnesota prepares for Wisconsin this week. He plans to be
back in the office (Monday)."
Kill has had issues with seizures in the past. He collapsed on the field last
September near the end of the game against New Mexico State, then returned to
coach the following week.
