UM’s Kill leaves game for hospital
Gophers coach has seizure, leaves game but considered stable
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota's team doctor says head coach Jerry Kill is in stable condition at a local hospital after suffering a seizure late in the game against New Mexico State.
Kill was taken from TCF Bank Stadium by ambulance Saturday night after collapsing on the sidelines with 20 seconds to go in the game. Team doctor Pat Smith says Kill "was at no time under any risk in any way."
Smith says the 90-degree temperature coupled with dehydration might have played a role in the seizure.
With the Gophers down 28-21 and trying for the tying touchdown, medical personnel suddenly surrounded Kill on the sideline. He was rolling around on the turf, with his arms and legs flapping back and forth at times, silencing the stadium.
