University of Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure after Saturday's loss to Northwestern University.

Kill was released from the hospital on Sunday morning.

"Coach Kill was discharged from the hospital this morning," said team physician Dr. Pat Smith. "He was evaluated yesterday and this morning, and all tests confirm that he remains in excellent health. His only concern is his team and staff, and he is excited to resume his normal coaching duties as Minnesota prepares for Wisconsin this week. He plans to be back in the office tomorrow." 

The University of Minnesota Athletic Department said the seizure took place in the coaches' locker room after Kill had completed his post game media responsibilities.

Team medial staff attended to the coach before being transported to an area hospital. He is said to be alert and resting comfortably.

Kill suffered a similar seizure last September, with seconds remaining in a game against New Mexico State University.
