Minnesota Gopher Football: Jerry Kill Suffers Seizure Saturday Morning, Will Not Coach at Michigan

Jerry Kill was not feeling well on Friday and stayed over in Minnesota, planning to meet the team in Ann Arbor today.  But the Gopher's coach suffered another seizure, his second of the season, and will not be with the team this afternoon.

There really is not a lot to report here.  He suffered a seizure at home and is resting at home.  Tracy Claeys will act as head coach today from the press box.

I highly doubt that more information will become available as this has happened enough that the team/staff knows what to do and from a medical perspective this is not out of the ordinary when it comes to Coach Kill.  I would bet that there will be a statement issued tomorrow and he'll be back to work on Sunday or Monday at the latest.  The team knows what to do and hopefully this will not act as a distraction.

Please do not forget that TDG is trying to help raise awareness and funds for the Epilepsy Foundation of MN in support of Jerry Kill.
