Former SIUC Coach Kill Has Seizure
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Team officials say Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill is showing signs of improvement and resting comfortably at a hospital after suffering a seizure late in the Gophers’ home opener against New Mexico State.
Team physician Pat Smith said in a statement Sunday that all tests have come back normal and further testing will continue as necessary. He says it’s too early to discuss further details, including when Kill might be released from the hospital.
The statement says there will be no further updates on Kill’s condition Sunday, but the team hopes to provide more information Monday.
Kill collapsed on the sidelines with seconds to go in the game Saturday night. It’s the third time in his coaching career that Kill has had a seizure on game day.
He previously was the head coach at Southern Illinois-Carbondale and Northern Illinois before taking the job at Minnesota.
