Kill Suffers Another Seizure, Admits Himself to Hospital

Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill readmitted himself to the hospital after suffering another seizure Sunday, according to GopherSports.com. The first-year Gophers coach is in good condition but will be admitted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for further testing and evaluation in an effort to resolve his ongoing seizure issues.

“The seizures continue to be a concern for me and my family,” Kill said in a statement. “Rebecca and I have made the decision to do what it takes to find a solution. I hope to be back to work soon, but we believe that taking some time away to get a handle on this is the right thing to do.”

Earlier this season, Kill suffered a seizure on the sideline in the closing seconds of Minnesota’s home-opening defeat to New Mexico State, and he has since continued to suffer other seizures. It is unknown how long Kill will stay at the Mayo, or if he’ll be able to coach Saturday.

Minnesota (1-3) opens Big Ten play at Michigan (4-0) at noon ET Saturday on BTN.

Coach Kill, we wish the the best of health. Your family needs you, far more than any football team could. Here’s to hoping the doctors can find a way to keep your seizures under control. Your staff will keep things going until you are in a position to return.
