Minneapolis, MN, United States (4E Sports) – After missing Saturday’s game due to seizure, University of Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill will have time to fully rest and work with doctors as the Gophers have a bye week before playing Northwestern on Oct. 19.
“He’s doing good,” said defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys, who spoke to Kill on Tuesday morning.
“He’s continuing to get the rest he needs and work with the doctors to do the best they can to get the situation under control with his medicine. They still believe they can do that,” Claeys added.
Kill, who has epilepsy, did not travel to Ann Arbor with his team Friday because he felt ill. He planned to go Saturday morning, but suffered a seizure and stayed home instead.
Claeys also declined to guess whether Kill would return to work Tuesday if the Gophers (4-2) were playing this weekend.
“I’m not going to go down that road,” Claeys said. “The best thing is the rest and getting the medication worked on. Since we don’t play this week, there’s no sense in hurrying that. We’re not practicing here until the end of the week.”
Kill appreciated all of the text messages from players, Claeys said.
