Jerry Kill Has Seizure After Gophers Loss

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Judd Zulgad of ESPN 1500 is reporting that Minnesota Golden Gophers head football coach Jerry Kill suffered another seizure after the Gophers' 21-13 loss to the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday afternoon.

Kill reportedly suffered the seizure following his post-game press conference, and was immediately attended to by medical personnel at TCF Bank Stadium before being transported to a local hospital via ambulance. The team is reporting that Coach Kill is resting comfortably at the hospital, but will remain there and undergo further testing.

The Gophers do not anticipate updating Kill's condition any further today, but are hoping to provide an update on Saturday.

Kill has a history of seizures throughout his coaching career, most notably on the sidelines at TCF Bank Stadium in 2011 during the Gophers' loss to New Mexico State. After one of his seizures as coach at Southern Illinois in 2005, he was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Kill's cancer is now in remission, but he continues to have issues with seizures.

Our thoughts go out to Coach Jerry Kill and his family during this time.
