POSTGAME: The below statement is from senior associate athletic director Chris Werle on Gopher head football coach Jerry Kill's medical condition following Minnesota's Sept. 14, 2013 game against Western Illinois:
"Coach Kill suffered a seizure at the end of the first half of today’s game against Western Illinois. He was attended to by medical personnel on the field and was then driven to a local hospital as a precaution to ensure proper medication levels. He is resting comfortably.
