Minnesota Golden Gophers coach Jerry Kill is going back to the hospital for treatment on his ongoing seizure problems.

Kill suffered a seizure on the sidelines late in the Sept. 10 loss to New Mexico State, and spent several days in the hospital.

He returned to coach the Gophers' next two games but admitted in a news conference last week that he'd been experiencing multiple seizures ever since.

Minnesota football team physician Dr. Pat Smith said in a news release that Kill suffered another seizure Sunday morning.

Kill is in good condition, but he will check into the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for further testing and evaluation. Smith was unsure on how long Kill's stay at Mayo will last.

"The seizures continue to be a concern for me and my family," Kill said in a statement released by the school. "Rebecca (Kill's wife) 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."

Minnesota did not say who would lead the team in Kill's absence. Coordinators Tracy Claeys and Matt Limegrover ran the Gophers while Kill was out before the Miami of Ohio game.

The Gophers (1-3) lost to North Dakota State on Saturday and open Big Ten play at Michigan this week.
