Rutgers Offensive Coordinator Jerry Kill has Seizure
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers offensive coordinator Jerry Kill has been hospitalized after suffering a seizure.
Speaking at a news conference Monday, Coach Chris Ash said the 56-year-old Kill had a "minor medical setback" on Sunday but was expected to be fine.
Ash said the former Minnesota coach who had dealt with epilepsy for almost two decades was in a local hospital and hoped to be released Monday or Tuesday.
Ash said he hopes Kill will be on the sideline Saturday when the Scarlet Knights (0-2) play host to Morgan State.
Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that can lead to loss of consciousness and convulsions.
Kill had his first seizure in 2000 when he was coach at Emporia State, and a sideline seizure in 2005 when he was coach at Southern Illinois led doctors to discover he also had kidney cancer. Kill beat the cancer, though for years he would say he had seizure disorder instead of epilepsy. He stepped down as Minnesota's coach in 2015.
