Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill announced on Sunday that he is readmitting himself to the hospital to treat ongoing seizure issues he has been suffering since his incident on Sept. 10.

Kill suffered a seizure in the fourth quarter of Minnesota's home loss to New Mexico State two weeks ago, and admitted to dealing with multiple seizure events since that scare.  He was last released from the hostpital on Sept. 15, just five days after the event.

“Coach Kill is determined to get this issue resolved,” director of athletics Joel Maturi said in an official release. “We all want what’s best for him, and his health is our first and foremost concern. I have full confidence that our football staff will get the team prepared while Jerry is away. We all want him back on the sidelines. But it’s time to find a resolution.”

According to the school, Kill suffered another seizure on Sunday morning. The Gophers' head coach is in good condition and his vital signs are reportedly "strong." There is no timetable for his dismissal from the Mayo Clinic or his return to the sideline for the team.

I wish him the best and I really hope he makes full recovery and not have seizures ever again...

But one has to wonder if losing to a FCS School (Albeit NDSU is ranked in top 10 FCS) would set him like that this morning.

Not Funny? Probably right...I do pray for Kill though to get better.

I wish him the best.  He has done a pretty nice job, and even more so, considering what he is dealing with.

Tell you what ... I suffer from seizures all the time and Im going to be having brain surgery soon to try and control them. It aint easy but from experience I can tell you its not life threating either. Hell , they dont even bother taking me to the hospital anymore when I have one. That being said I wish the coach well and hope the find what he needs .. .Probably some good meds should do it for him ... I hope Smile

T&P to Coach Kill from Aggieland.  Hoping for a full recovery and a way to get this under control if at all possible.

All the best to coach Kill.  Hopefully he can get this under control and the Gophers moving and more importantly himself!

Wherever they play next on the road, the fans should all show up with a string of blinking Christmas lights. Let's test the guy.

I love the Golden Gophers and am ready to drive 1200 miles to make a game at The U.  But this program will test a healthy coach.  Coach Kill may be better off finding a position where he wouldn't have to work so hard.  I don't mean Texas A&M.  If he'd been the defensive coordinator he'd have to watch his team quit in the second half.  That might have done him in.  Good luck Coach Jerry.  Mayo is the place to be.

Time to focus on himself and not the team.  Best of luck to coach kill and his recovery!
