Jerry Kill Has Another Seizure, Will Miss Michigan Game

Jerry Kill suffered a seizure this morning—his second of the season—and will miss game action for the fourth time since joining the Gophers. The Gophers head coach was not feeling well Friday and did not accompany his team to its hotel in Dearborn, Michigan. He planned on traveling Saturday to join and coach the team, but had a seizure in his home.

He was not hospitalized, but remained home and will miss the game against Michigan, which kicks off at 3:30 pm. Most recently, Kill had a seizure at halftime of Minnesota's September 14 matchup with Western Illinois. Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys will fill in as head coach from the press box, as he did for the second half of the Western Illinois game.
