When he wasn't able to make it to a game for the first time in his coaching career last weekend against Michigan, Kill decided it was time to take a step back, put his health before football for once and try to get a handle on an issue that has taken him from the sideline twice in the past month.
Kill and the university announced Thursday that the coach is taking an open-ended leave of absence from the team to focus on treatment and management of his epilepsy, and it is uncertain when he will be able to return to the Golden Gophers.
Hope Kill can come back healthy and continue coaching for a long time to come....but this leave of absence was way overdue.
Coach Kill will be taking an indefinite leave of absence after suffering his 5th seizure in 3 years as the HC of Minnesota.
