Gophers coach Kill collapses, leaves game

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill has been taken by ambulance from TCF Bank Stadium after collapsing late in the game against New Mexico State.

With 20 seconds left on the clock, the Gophers trailed 28-21 with the ball, trying for the tying touchdown. Medical personnel suddenly surrounded Kill on the sideline. He was rolling around on the turf, with his arms and legs flapping back and forth at times, silencing the stadium.

After about 15 minutes Kill was put on a stretcher, and the crowd clapped and chanted "Jerry! Jerry!" as he was rolled away.

Kill has a history of seizures. At Southern Illinois in 2006, he missed about a week before returning to the job.
