WCCO reports that Coach Jerry Kill had a seizure Saturday morning, and will not coach the game against Michigan.

USA Today quoted a University of Minnesota statement: "Coach Kill was not feeling well on Friday morning and decided to meet the team in Ann Arbor on Saturday. He then suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and will remain at home in Minnesota for today's game."

His most recent game-day seizure was Sept. 14 against Western Illinois. The latest one is his fifth since Minnesota hired him in 2011.

Twitter is blazing with the news and best wishes for the coach.
