               === Minnesota's Kill steps away for treatment ===
 
 Minneapolis,  MN (SportsNetwork.com)  - Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is
 taking  time  away from  the team  to focus on  his epilepsy treatment, Golden
 Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague announced Thursday.
 
 Kill  suffered his  fifth  seizure-related  episode since  taking  the job  at
 Minnesota in 2011 prior to the team's Oct. 5 loss at Michigan.
 
 "My  wife  Rebecca, myself  and our  two daughters want  to thank everyone for
 their prayers and concerns during the last few weeks," Kill said in statement.
 "This  was  a difficult  decision  to  make,  but  the right  decision.  Every
 decision that will be made will be in the best interest of the players and the
 program.  I look forward to returning to the Minnesota sideline on a full-time
 basis soon."
 
 Defensive  coordinator  Tracy Claeys  served as  Minnesota's acting head coach
 against Michigan and will continue in that role while Kill is away.
 
 "Coach  Kill  is taking time  to continue treatment  and focus on managing his
 epilepsy,"  Teague  said. "Tracy Claeys  will serve  as the interim head coach
 until  coach  Kill is  ready to return.  Coach Kill will  remain in very close
 contact  with the  team and  his staff  and provide  direction and  support as
 needed.  Our support  for coach Kill is  unwavering and we look forward to his
 return to full-time coaching duties."
 
 Kill,  52, had  a seizure during a  Sept. 14 game against Western Illinois. He
 also  suffered a seizure  in the locker room at halftime of last year's season
 finale  against Michigan  State. Two seasons ago, the coach was carted off the
 field after having a seizure near the end of a loss to New Mexico State.
