UPDATE: Kansas Tabs Gill As New Football Coach

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas has hired former Nebraska quarterback and assistant coach Turner Gill as its new head football coach.

The university officially announced the deal Sunday.

The Associated Press and other news outlets had reported Saturday evening that the 47-year-old had accepted the offer of a multiyear contract to replace Mark Mangino.

Gill has been head coach at Buffalo the past four years and took the Bulls to the Mid-American Conference title in 2008. He will be formally introduced at a news conference on Monday.

    He would be crazy to take the Bearcat job. He should stay until something better comes.

    I really hope he stays here at ECU. He is a great fit for our Pirates!!!

    Skip needs to stay at ECU because the only expectations there are to win 8 games and go to the sub par Liberty Bowl.
