Jerry Kill To Take Extended Time Off From Gophers to Manage Epilepsy

Minnesota Gophers head football coach Jerry Kill recently suffered another stroke, which caused him to miss the game in Michigan.  The Gophers are on a bye this week and Coach Kill has decided he needs even more time away to try to manage his epilepsy.

StarTribune.com is reporting that this is the first time in Kill’s three seasons at Minnesota that he’s taken an extended leave. The Michigan game also marked the first time in his 20-year head coaching career that he missed an entire game.

While some have voiced opinion that he should step down for the good of his health and the program, he believes an extended leave to meet with his medical team is the next step, before doing something as drastic as leaving.

Ultimately,  the hope is he can get a handle on this primarily for his own well being.  There is currently no timetable for his return to the team.  The Gophers next game is October 19th against Northwestern.
