Gophers coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure in the coaches' locker room at TCF Bank Stadium shortly after Minnesota's 21-13 loss to Northwestern, the university confirmed, and was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance.
Kill is alert and resting comfortably, according to a statement by the university, and no further information about his condition is available. The trip to the hospital was "a precaution," the statement said.
Kill has a history of seizures, and collapsed on the sidelines during the fourth quarter of a game against New Mexico State in September 2011. He was hospitalized for several days, and suffered several recurrences, before a combination of medication and lifestyle changes brought his condition under control. Kill said in July that he was in his best health in several years.
