|Jerry Kill will take "some time" off to treat his seizures.|
Jerry Kill will seek treatment at Mayo Clinic for his seizures, which have continued to reoccur since he suffered one on the sidelines at the end of Minnesota's game against New Mexico State.
Last week, Kill announced that he'd had something like 20 seizures in six days, and explained that he'd been suffering from them from for years and wouldn't let it stop him from coaching. After the Gophers' 37-24 loss to North Dakota State University on Saturday, Kill suffered yet another seizure Sunday morning.
That, apparently, was one too many for Kill and his wife. Kill, making reference to his wife, explained his decision to seek treatment in a statement issued yesterday afternoon.
"The seizures continue to be a concern for me and my family," Kill said. "Rebecca and I have made the decision to do what it takes to find a solution. I hope to be back to work soon, but we believe that taking some time away to get a handle on this is the right thing to do."More »
