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.
