Unfortunately the epileptic seizures have gotten the best of him:

It's a shame when you can no longer do what you love because of medical concerns. But I was really worried about him having another seizure - or worse - on the sidelines during a game.

He led Minnesota to their first New Year's Day bowl since 1962. Wow. Not a Rose Bowl, not even a Capital One Bowl or even an Outback Bowl.

What a horrible coaching job at the end of that game. How do you call a play that takes 10 seconds for everyone to shift, go in motion, etc., with 19 seconds left and the clock running? How do you not know the clock will start when they place it?

They had two minutes while they were doing the replay review to figure out a play and be ready to go when the ball is placed. 19 seconds left and one timeout - you can get three plays in. Anything on 1st down, if a run and you get stopped call TO, still have 12 seconds to do a quick pass, and a 4th down play.
