MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has returned to his normal game-week routine three days after his latest epileptic seizure caused him to miss the second half of a win over Western Illinois.

Kill declined to speak about his health at his usual Tuesday press conference. He says he wants to keep the focus on the players and their upcoming game against San Jose State on Saturday.

Kill’s seizure last weekend was his fourth on a game day since he took the Golden Gophers job in 2011. After resting at home over the weekend, he was back at the office Monday meeting with coaches.

Athletic director Norwood Teague gave Kill a strong vote of confidence on Monday. Teague said he is 100 percent behind Kill.
