University of Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill is retiring from coaching effective immediately, according to multiple reports. The 54-year-old Kill, who has dealt with the effects of epilepsy since 2005, said he attended practice Tuesday after suffering two seizures and has had additional seizures in the past year.

Kill was quoted saying, “I don’t want to be a liability, I don’t want somebody to have to worry about if I’m going to drop on the field. I don’t want to coach from the press box. I want to coach the way I coached my whole life.”

“I don’t have any more energy. None. I’ve left it all here in the great state of Minnesota. And I have no regrets.”

“This is not the way I wanted to go out,” Kill said. “But you all know about the struggles. And I did my best to change. But some of those struggles have returned. And I don’t want to cheat the game. And I ain’t going to change.

Kill, who has been a head coach in college football since 2008 with Northern Illinois, ends his career with a 52-45 record. He is one of the most well-respected coaches in the game today and will surely be missed.
