Minnesota coach Jerry Kill released from hospital
Kill suffered a minor seizure after Minnesota's loss to Northwestern on Saturday.
“Coach Kill was discharged from the hospital this morning,” team physician Pat Smith said. “He was evaluated yesterday and this morning and all tests confirm that he remains in excellent health. His only concern is his team and staff, and he is excited to resume his normal coaching duties as Minnesota prepares for Wisconsin this week. He plans to be back in the office tomorrow.”
Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys told the Pioneer Press he expected Kill to resume his coaching duties as early as Sunday afternoon.
"To him it's a big deal in the fact that he wishes it wasn't public," Claeys told the paper. "It doesn't affect how we do things and how we prepare and all that. So that, without a doubt, is the most frustrating thing to him. Other people who have (seizures) don't have such a public job. A lot of people live with it and do their jobs. It just so happens that during the season, it's more public."
Kill suffered a major seizure during a game against New Mexico State last season and had to be hospitalized for a few days. According to Claeys this latest seizure was nothing close to major and that if it happened "30 minutes later" when Kill was at home, he wouldn't even have needed to be hospitalized.
