Jerry Kill: 'I'll be on the sideline' for Minnesota games this fall
After moving to the press box for the second half of the 2013 season, Jerry Kill says he'll be back on the field in 2014.
Minnesota's Jerry Kill will do his coaching on the field this fall, he told fans at a "Gopher Road Trip" meet-and-greet Tuesday.
“I’ll be on the sideline,” Kill said, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “That’s who I am, and I think that’s best for our team. However, if we need to adjust something, [our coaches have] all been together a long time.”
The 52-year-old Kill was disagnosed with epilepsy in 2005 and missed two 2013 games after suffering a seizure in early October. He coached the Gophers' remaining seven games from the press box.
But Kill also said Tuesday he is "feeling pretty good," has not suffered a seizure since the October incident, and has been driving himself to work.
Kill has been a prominent advocate of epilepsy-related causes, recently donating $100,000 to the new "Chasing Dreams" initiative of the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota.
