Turner Gill To Coach Kansas Jayhawks

December 13, 2009 at 10:05 am Leave a comment

Former Buffalo head football coach Turner Gill has reportedly been hired to take the same position at Kansas, a position recently vacated by the departure of Mark Mangino as a result of “pressure”.

Mark Mangino was named the National Coach of the Year in 2007 and had the Kansas football program going in the right direction. However, reports surfaced in 2009 and claimed that Mangino used hateful and disrespectful treatment toward Jayhawk players during games and practices. An investigation then followed, leaving a head coaching job available for someone special. Step on up Turner Gill.

Gill has led Buffalo to a 20-30 record in four years, including a MAC Championship in 2008. Gill has the leadership and feel for the game, making him truly one of the greatest young coaches in the country. His move to Kansas takes him to a better program, makes him more money, and gains him much more attention. Turner Gill will eventually get his shot at a big program job and the recent jump to the Big XII is a perfect stepping stone. I would look for some noise coming out of Lawrence.
