Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has returned to the sideline for the first time since Sept. 28 in the second half of the Texas Bowl against Syracuse.
    
Kill began the Texas Bowl from the press box where he has observed his team since returning from a leave of absence because of his epilepsy. He was on the sideline to start the second half of the bowl game with his team trailing 7-3.
    
Kill has had five seizures on game day in his two-plus seasons with the Golden Gophers. He took the leave of absence in October and returned a couple of weeks later.
