Kill Suffers Seizure After Gopher Loss

| No Comments

Jerry Kill suffered another seizure Saturday after the Gophers lose 21-13 to Northwestern at TCF Bank Stadium, news sources report.

This loss was very stressful for Kill as the Gopher's numerous mistakes eventually led to a loss against the competitive Northwestern team, according to the Star Tribune. Going forward it's unclear how this seizure will affect the Gophers season (4-2, 0-2 Big Ten).

It's been almost a year since the last incident took place during a Gopher's charter flight from Chicago, according to the Star Tribune. In July, Kill said he was in better shape than he was several years ago and reported no relapses. A series of changes to his routine and medication has helped bring his seizures under control, Kill said.

After last year's game against Northwestern Kill said he wouldn't let his condition "define" him; he would quit coaching if he thought it seriously threatened his career, according to the Pioneer Press.

Dr. Thaddeus Walczak, a neurologist for the Minnesota Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, said to the Pioneer Press that he suspects that Kill's recent episode would not keep him from coaching this week if it was a minor seizure.

Kill was alert and resting comfortably, the university said. No other information about his condition will be released until Sunday, both news sources reported.
