Kill returns from epilepsy center in Michigan, will continue treatment at home

Posted by: Joe Christensen under Gopher coaches Updated: October 17, 2013 - 3:09 PM

After spending time a top epilepsy center in Grand Rapids, Mich., Gophers football coach Jerry Kill has returned home to Minneapolis, where he’ll continue receiving treatment while on leave from the team, a person familiar with the situation told the Star Tribune on Thursday.

There is still no timetable for Kill’s return. Acting head coach Tracy Claeys said he doesn’t expect Kill to be with the team for Saturday’s game at Northwestern.

The Gophers announced last Thursday that Kill was taking time to treat his epilepsy, as seizures had forced him to miss parts of four games in three seasons at Minnesota. Filling in for Kill on his weekly radio show Thursday on 100.3-FM, Claeys sounded upbeat about Kill’s progress.

"They feel very good about the process right now,” Claeys said. “It's just not going to be fast enough for [Kill]."
