Coach Jerry Kill expected back for Gophers’ next game after recovering from seizure

By

University of Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is expected to return to the team for its next game, against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday, after suffering a seizure on the sideline during Saturday's 28-21 home-opening loss to New Mexico Stateā€¦"It sounds like with the word 'benign' that it's not the type of seizure condition that is likely to cause additional problems while treated with the appropriate medication," said Dr. Gregory Cascino, a Mayo Clinic neurologist and epilepsy specialist. "Idiopathic means that despite doing an evaluation you've come to no obvious symptomatic causes. It means that the doctors anticipate that with appropriate treatment, he has a great chance at being seizure-free." Additional coverage: WCCO Radio
