Minnesota's Kill suffers seizure during game, resting in hospital
The Minnesota coach received medical attention on the sideline during Minnesota's game against Western Illinois.
Minnesota coach Jerry Kill received medical attention on the sideline during the second quarter of Minnesota's game against Western Illinois on Saturday. Kill was placed on a stretcher before being taken off the field.
The Associated Press reported that Kill suffered a seizure on the sideline, the fourth time he's suffered a seizure on game day in his three seasons at the school. The last one occurred during halftime of Minnesota's regular season finale against Michigan State last season. That seizure took place in the locker room.
The last time Kill suffered a seizure on the sideline was against New Mexico State in 2011.
According to the school Kill was taken from the stadium to a local hospital and is resting comfortably. Assistant Jay Sawvel is serving as acting coach on the field with Kill out while defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys is acting head coach.
Without Kill on the sideline Minnesota went on to beat Western Illinois 29-12.
