MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Another seizure for Jerry Kill kept the Minnesota coach off the sideline for the second half of the game against Michigan State.

Kill’s latest episode occurred in the locker room at halftime as the team was returning to the field. Athletic director Norwood Teague said after the Gophers lost 26-10 to the Spartans on Saturday that Kill was resting comfortably, and all of his vital signs were fine. Kill was cleared to go home, without going to a hospital.

Kill had a seizure one near the end of a game last season and was away from the team for several days while doctors tried to bring his condition under better control.
