Jerry Kill Returns To Hospital For Ongoing Issues With Seizures

Minnesota Golden Gophers football head coach suffered a seizure on the sidelines during his team's September 10 game against New Mexico State, but had returned to coaching the team. However, after coaching for two games, Kill has announced that he is readmitting himself to the hospital to deal with his ongoing issues with seizures.

Kill had previously suffered a seizure during a game back in 2005, and also had health issues that caused him to be hospitalized after a game last season. 

Minnesota suffered a rather embarrassing loss with Kill on the sidelines on Saturday, as the North Dakota State Bison, a FCS team, came to Minneapolis and defeated the Gophers 37-24 on their home field. Kill made it through the game and through speaking to the media post-game, but things went south later. Reportedly, Kill suffered another seizure on Sunday, which is why he returned to the hospital.

Jerry Kill Plans To Coach Minnesota One Week After Suffering Seizure

During the Minnesota Golden Gophers' game against New Mexico State last week, Gophers head coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure on the sidelines. Kill has a history of seizures, but the one that caused him to collapse, then be taken to the hospital last Saturday was an especially bad one. Incredibly, after a five-day stay in the hospital during which he experienced additional seizures, Kill is expected to coach Minnesota Saturday against Miami of Ohio.

Kill has not yet decided whether to coach from the sidelines or the press box, but the fact that he's coaching at all is incredible. He said that the seizure was one of the worst that he's experienced and that "It's kind of knocked me out." Kill did not stay with the team in their hotel on Friday night, but took place in the Friday walkthrough and participated in meetings with his assistants.

Jerry Kill 'Stable And Improving' After Seizure On Minnesota Sideline

Minnesota Golden Gophers coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure late in his team's Saturday game against New Mexico State. He was removed from the field by cart and taken to a hospital. The University of Minnesota announced Kill is in stable condition and already improving.

A report from team doctor Pat Smith:

Dr. Smith provided University officials with a further update early in the evening following the game and said that Kill was stable and awake, but medicated. He said that Kill was improving and talking with his wife Rebecca, but would undergo further testing as a precaution.

 Kill has a history of dealing with both seizures and dehydration on the sidelines. Smith said the two ailments affect Kill in tandem, with hot and humid conditions threatening to trigger seizures.

There's no timetable yet on Kill's return to his post as Minnesota coach. Based on his past, you could hope for a quick recovery, but the most important news is that he's going to be fine.
