Minnesota Coach Jerry Kill Taken Off Field On A Stretcher

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffered is being reported as a seizure during the first half of the Golden Gophers’ game against Western Illinois.


Kill suffers from epilepsy. The official Minnesota Twitter account reports Gopher staff has a contingency plan if Kill’s condition requires medical attention.


He suffered a similar issue in 2011 against New Mexico State, and missed the second half of last year’s loss to Michigan State when he had a seizure at halftime.

Kill has used his public seizures as an outlet to raise awareness of the condition.

Big Ten Network reports that University of Minnesota medical staff is tending to Kill at halftime.
