MINNEAPOLIS University of Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill was not on the sideline for the second half of the Gophers' game Saturday against Michigan State. The school said that he was unlikely to return to the game but did not have any other updates on his condition during the second half.
The Gophers went on to lose, 26-10.
Kill, 51, has a history of seizures. He suffered one on the sideline of the Gophers' game last year against New Mexico State and another in the TCF Bank Stadium locker room after Minnesota's loss to Northwestern earlier this year. He was hospitalized after both episodes.
Despite his seizure disorder, Kill has never missed a game due to seizures. The Gophers' second-year coach prefers not to talk about his medical condition. After his seizure this October, Kill downplayed the situation. His only comment on his health following the Northwestern game was, "I'm back to work, going full speed."

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Andre Hollins had a lot to deal with as he and his Minnesota teammate prepared to face Memphis in the Battle 4 Atlantis. His grandmother died last weekend. And across the court from him Friday were a lot people he knows well — he was one of the Memphis high school players who got away.
PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Andre Hollins stood outside the Minnesota locker room, playing with the strings on his backpack and smiling one of those once-in-a-lifetime smiles. A day after he scored 41 points, Hollins made three free throws with 0.4 seconds to play to give the Golden Gophers a 66-63 victory against Stanford on Saturday in the fifth-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis.
