Jerry Kill on Minnesota's sideline

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill is coaching from the sidelines Saturday against Miami of Ohio, just 48 hours after being released from the hospital following his seizure on the sideline against New Mexico State.

Kill attended Minnesota's practice Thursday night after spending five days in the hospital.

Kill has had a history of seizures, but he told the paper that the one that occurred with 20 seconds left in the Gophers' 28-21 loss to New Mexico State last Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium was the worst one he'd ever experienced.

"It's kind of knocked me out," he said.

Kill told the Big Ten Network on Friday that he suffered more seizures this week while in the hospital.

He had had seizures in 2001, 2005 and 2006 while coaching at Southern Illinois. Kill has not missed a game as a result but said Saturday's seizures caused some memory loss.

"I remember the first half and then the third quarter," he told The Big Ten Network. "And then after that I really don't remember anything for pretty much a couple days. I kind of remember some glances at the hospital, but it was kind of a fog there for a while."
