Kill back on sideline for Minnesota

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has returned to the sideline for the

first time since Sept. 28 in the second half of the Texas Bowl

against Syracuse.

Kill began the Texas Bowl from the press box where he has

observed his team since returning from a leave of absence because

of his epilepsy. He was on the sideline to start the second half of

the bowl game with his team trailing 7-3.

Kill has had five seizures on game day in his two-plus seasons

with the Golden Gophers. He took the leave of absence in October

and returned a couple of weeks later.
