University of Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill continued to show signs of improvement Sunday morning and is resting comfortably at a local hospital after suffering a seizure late in the Golden Gophers' home opener at TCF Bank Stadium.

According to Gophers' team physician Dr. Pat Smith, all tests performed on Coach Kill today have come back absolutely normal and that further testing would continue as necessary.

Smith said that it was too early to discuss further details, including when he expects Coach Kill to be released from the hospital.

Athletics Department officials said that there would be no further updates on Coach Kill's condition Sunday, but hope to provide further information on Monday.

"Coach Kill is in good hands and is receiving the very best in medical care," director of athletics Joel Maturi said. "Right now the reports we have received from our medical staff are positive and I am very pleased that he continues to show steady signs of improvement."
