Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffers another seizure
Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure in his home on Saturday morning and will not coach the team against Michigan.
Coach Kill suffers from epilepsy and has a history of seizures on game day, including one earlier this year near halftime of the Gophers’ game against Western Illinois.
The University of Minnesota Athletic Department released a statement explaining their coach’s status:
Coach Kill was not feeling well on Friday morning and decided to meet the team in Ann Arbor on Saturday. He then suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and will remain at home in Minnesota for today’s game.
Kill has been in contact with his coaching staff, and defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys will serve as head coach for the game.
