Exactly a week after throwing a scare into those associated with the Minnesota football program, Jerry Kill plans on coaching his Gophers against Miami of Ohio Saturday. Where that coaching will take place, however, remains to be seen.
Kill told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he intends to coach the Gophers in the nonconference matchup, seven days after suffering a seizure on the sidelines very late in the fourth quarter of the loss to New Mexico State. Kill was uncertain, though, whether he will coach from the sidelines or from the press box.
After being hospitalized for five days, Kill was released from the hospital Thursday. The first-year coach attended practice the same day, and took part in the team’s walkthrough Friday.
While his team will stay in a hotel ahead of the home game, Kill will not.
Off to a 0-2 start, the Gophers will be seeking their first win of the season.
