Kill has a history of epileptic seizures dating back to his days as coach at Southern Illinois. He suffered a seizure during a 2005 game against Illinois State, and he collapsed on the field during Minnesota's game against New Mexico State in 2011. In August, he told ESPN's Rick Reilly that he estimates he has suffered 20 seizures over the last two years.

Kill has spoken at the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota and spent time with children suffering from the condition. According to Reilly, Kill had been seeing an epilepsy specialist at the Mayo Clinic prior to this season.
