According to a press release, Gophers coach Jerry Kill plans to make a "major announcement" Thursday in conjunction with the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota's Rise Above Seizures Day.
Kill, who suffers from epilepsy, will speak at Kieran's Irish Pub in Minneapolis at 10:45 a.m., and take questions from the media, before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the Twins/Red Sox game.
“Coach and Rebecca Kill’s partnership continues to help thousands of people and elevate epilepsy awareness to a level we never dreamed possible,” Executive Director Vicki Kopplin said in the release.
