From Dennis Dodd at CBS Sports:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Minnesota coach Jerry Kill suffered a seizure early Saturday morning and did not accompany the team to its game at Michigan, has learned.

Sources said Kill "did not feel well" Friday night and was not with the team overnight at its hotel in Dearborn, Mich. Kill was not hospitalized and is resting at home, a spokesman for the school said.

The players were told after arriving at Michigan Stadium about 1 p.m. Saturday. 

Official statement from Minnesota:

Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill is at home in Minneapolis and will not be on the sideline for today's game against Michigan. Coach Kill was not feeling well on Friday morning and decided to meet the team in Ann Arbor on Saturday. He then suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and will remain at home in Minnesota for today's game.

Coach Kill has been in contact with his staff today and defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys will serve as Minnesota's acting head coach from the press box.

Thoughts are with Jerry Kill. This couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
