Jerry Kill suffers another seizure

After their game today. He had one during a game last year.

quote:

Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure following Saturday's game and was taken to a local hospital. Kill, 51, had the seizure following his post-game news conference. Team medical personnel attended to him, and he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance as a precaution. The second-year Gophers coach is "currently alert and resting comfortably," according to the team. Minnesota hopes to provide a status update Sunday on Kill. Kill has had seizures since being diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2005. He suffered a seizure on the sideline at the end of a game last September against New Mexico State. He spent several days in the hospital but returned to coach Minnesota the following week. Kill takes medication to manage his seizures but still has them from time to time. He has lived with the condition for years, and while it's a concern for Minnesota, he seems to bounce back quickly. We wish him all the best in his recovery and hope to see him on the sideline next week at Wisconsin.

I bet he doesn't take his pills on a strict timetable.

My dad has epilepsy, and if he screws up when he takes his pills he'll have a really bad seizure. Thankfully he's gotten to where he takes his meds at basically the same times every day and he's not had one in a few years.

Interesting insight. Of course his work hours for being the HC at a major university don't help out either.

Still sucks for the guy, though.

It's a little over kill.

Time to hang up the coaching duties.
