Jerry Kill recovering from latest seizure
By Adam Rittenberg
Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill is at home recovering after suffering a seizure during halftime of the Gophers' game against Michigan State.
Athletic director Norwood Teague told reporters after the game that Kill didn't need to be hospitalized and will be fine. That's great to hear.
"We have 100 percent confidence in Jerry," Teague said. "We'll evaluate his health at the end of the year. ... That's more for him."
Kill, a cancer survivor, has battled seizure disorder for years, and his longtime staff of assistants is prepared to take over his duties during games. He suffered a severe seizure on the sideline during a game last year and had another after an Oct. 13 game earlier this season.
He has yet to miss an entire game as Gophers coach.
