            === Minnesota HC Kill to focus on Epilepsy treatment ===
 
 Minneapolis,  MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Minnesota director of athletics Norwood
 Teague  announced Thursday  that head football coach Jerry Kill is taking time
 away from the team to focus on his Epilepsy treatment.
 
 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
 released  by the  school Thursday. "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 in
 the  setback  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."
 
 The 52-year-old Kill also had a seizure during a Sept. 14 game against Western
 Illinois.
