Minnesota men’s football coach Jerry Kill is resting comfortably at home after the coach suffered a seizure during his team’s Saturday match against Michigan State.
Fans didn’t realize that coach Kill had a seizure until it was revealed during a press briefing following the game.
Jerry Kill did not return to the game following halftime, and the Minnesota staff did not reveal his exit until the fourth quarter. At the time of announcing the coach’s exit, team officials did not give a reason for his departure.
After the game, Fox’s Tyler Mason tweeted:
“#Gophers coach Jerry Kill did have a seizure at the end of halftime, the school announced.”
We reported on Coach Kill’s seizure on Saturday when athletic director Norwood Teague explained:
“I know this will bring up questions about him and moving forward, but we have 100 percent confidence in Jerry … He’s as healthy as a horse, as they say. It’s just an epileptic situation … that he deals with. He has to continue to monitor all the simple things in life that we all have to monitor, in that you watch your diet, watch your weight, watch your rest, watch your stress.”
The coach suffers seizures from time-to-time because of his own health concerns, and his university administration has continued to stand beside his coaching abilities.
Jerry Kill was at home less than 24 hours after suffering from a seizure, a good sign that he will quickly recover and return to his team’s roster.
