A scary situation took place today in Minnesota when Gophers head coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure on the sidelines.

Both the coaching and medical staff surrounded Kill during the seizure and he was carted off the field to an awaiting ambulance where he was transported to a local hospital.

Per Marcus Fuller:

Coach Jerry Kill is still on the field at halftime near the sidelines. Medical staff is watching over him. It seems he’s having a seizure.

He is reportedly ‘resting comfortably’:

On BTN, a Minnesota official said Jerry Kill was taken to a hospital and is resting comfortably there. Great news.

This isn’t the first time Kill has had a medical situation on the field as he suffered a seizure during a game against New Mexico State in 2011 and also suffered a seizure in the lockerroom after a game against Northwestern in 2012.

Our prayers from FanSided are with Coach Kill and his family and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Hopefully we’ll see him back on the sidelines soon.
