Gophers football coach Jerry Kill, who suffered a seizure with 20 seconds remaining in Saturday’s home opener at TCF Bank Stadium, is likely to coach the team in its next game, team physician Pat Smith said Monday.

Smith said during a news conference that Kill remains hospitalized, awaiting the results of tests. But Smith said he expects Kill to be released soon.

“Sooner than later,’’ Smith said.

Kill has a history of seizures, suffering previous seizures during games in 2001 and 2005. He also had a seizure taping a 2006 television show and has had several seizures at home, according to his brother, Frank Kill.

The Gophers lost 28-21 to New Mexico State Saturday to fall to 0-2 in Kill’s first season as Minnesota coach. The Gophers play host to Miami (Ohio) this Saturday.
