Kill Resting For Return

Kill Resting For Return

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has a well-timed bye week to recover from his latest seizure.

Team spokesman Paul Rovnak said Kill stayed at home on Sunday to rest. He had an episode the day before that kept him from traveling to the game at Michigan.

The Gophers don’t play again until Oct. 19, so this is a low-key week. Assistant coaches held a brief meeting with players before leaving the facility.

Kill has said he’d leave the job if his epilepsy interfered too much with his performance or the success of the program. This was his second game-day seizure this season and the fifth in three years at Minnesota.

His bosses and his assistants have repeatedly said they can handle Kill’s absences and that his condition is not a problem.
