Rutgers offensive coordinator Jerry Kill has returned to the coaching staff after having a minor seizure on Sunday morning, Coach Chris Ash said.
“Jerry is fine; he’s back to work. He was in our offices yesterday working,” Ash said on the Big Ten media teleconference Tuesday morning. “As usual, he’ll coach this week, coach the game, and moving forward, no concerns at all. It was a minor setback. So we’re excited that Jerry is fine and back in the office, back with our football team.”
Kill, who has epilepsy, has dealt with health issues in his career before. He coached at Minnesota starting in 2011 but had to step down during the 2015 season for health reasons.
This time didn’t seem nearly as serious, as Kill left the hospital on Monday afternoon.
Back on the sidelines, Kill will look to jump-start an offense that scored 13 points in Rutgers’ home loss to Eastern Michigan last weekend. The Scarlet Knights host Morgan State on Saturday.
