MINNEAPOLIS — After conducting his postgame media interviews Saturday, Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill was taken from TCF Bank Stadium by ambulance to a hospital for what university officials said appeared to be a seizure related to his epilepsy.

Kill, the former Northern Illinois coach, was said to be “alert and resting comfortably” and was continuing to be evaluated several hours after Northwestern’s 21-13 victory over the Golden Gophers, school officials said.

Kill, 51, collapsed on the sideline during a game last season after having a seizure.
