Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins announced in a statement Sunday that former University of Buffalo coach Turner Gill will be the next head football coach at Kansas University.
A formal press conference will take place at 11 a.m. Monday.
“Turner Gill is a winner,” Perkins said in the release. “His accomplishments at Buffalo speak for themselves. But more than that, everyone I talked to about him, starting with (former Nebraska coach) Tom Osborne, had the highest praise for Turner as a coach and as a person.”
Gill has been coach at Buffalo the last four seasons, earning MAC coach of the year honors in 2007 and 2008.
