Coach Kill released from hospitalby Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio
Minneapolis — Jerry Kill, coach of the University of Minnesota Gophers football team, was released from the hospital Thursday. Kill was hospitalized after suffering a seizure last weekend during a game.
Dr. Pat Smith, the Gopher's team physician, says Kill is resting at home, in good spirits and eager to get back to work.
Smith said Kill has no restrictions and may return to work "when he feels up to it." Whether or not to coach the Gophers at Saturday's home game against Ohio's Miami University is for Kill himself to decide.
Kill was hospitalized last Saturday after collapsing and suffering a seizure late in the football game against New Mexico State in TCF Bank Stadium. He was taken from the game by ambulance and hospitalized much of this week while doctors evaluated his medication levels.
Kill takes medication to control seizures, which he's suffered from in the past. He is also a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2005 for which he has been treated.
