Gophers' Kill Suffers Post-Game Seizure (SUNDAY UPDATE)

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffered another seizure- this time after Saturday's loss to Northwestern. He was taken to an undisclosed, local hospital.

Kill has had a seizure disorder since being diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2005.

He also suffered a seizure on the sideline during a game last September and had to be hospitalized. He returned the following week.

Here was that event as it aired on Big Ten Network...

Here's the release from the University of Minnesota:

“Kill was immediately attended to by team medical personnel before being transported to a local hospital by ambulance as a precaution. He is currently alert and resting comfortably.

To respect Kill’s privacy during this time, the name of the hospital where he is receiving care will not be released.

University officials said that they do not anticipate further information on Coach Kill’s condition being available Saturday night, but are hopeful about being able to provide an update on Sunday.”

The school hopes to have an update tomorrow.

SUNDAY UPDATE: They do have an update...

Thankfully, Kill was released from the hospital. Gophers DC Tracy Claeys told local reporters that were assembled for a quick, day-after press conference that the seizure was "minor" and that Kill could be with the team as early as this afternoon for team activities.
