Turner Gill expected to take over as Kansas football coach

He was not hired because nebraska's defense was the problem and they hired the best defensive mind in college football and it shows! Simple as that! Now at the same time KU's defense is horrible, but the team also lacks integrity! Gill has that and is bringing a darn good DC and OC with him! KU will be fine! As I said before I don't like the hire for one reason and that is the fact that I know KU is going to give BIG RED a run for their money year in and year out with gill!

I never saw anyone say he did win the heisman. I saw a few saying he was quarterback coach when crouch won it. Also when Frazier was second but should have won it!
I really hope some of Gill rubs off on you people! He is the epitome of what college football is about and he learned it from the best! You don't get to be one of the most respected programs in college football history by having a great head coach and mediocre people around him! It takes a whole staff of great coaches! Be supportive! Expect him to win! I promise you he expects to win here, and with or without your support he is going to win here!

To the supporters of Gill, I am happy for you and wish this team the best of luck heading forward, although in my mind luck will not be a factor.

To the naysayers- You are a bunch of fair weather fans who don't deserve the class act that Gill is! Have some respect for the guy. He spent 16 years in this conference, and knows what kind of fans you are. Yet he still took this job, even though every time he was in Lawrence your stadium was 3/4 red! I think he is giving you as fans the benefit of the doubt, you should consider doing the same for him!

Some of you people just don't have a clue what you have.... Lew made a great hire! there hasn't been a coach at KU with the character that Gill has since Famborough!
I didn't like it when NU hired Callasham but I maned up and supported him and my team as did husker nation. We gave the guy a chance to succeed! he failed miserably...
That said, Just give the guy a chance, I promise he'll make you proud to call yourself a Jayhawk! He made me proud to call myself a Husker and I expect nothing less from him in Lawrence!

Well said Teacher!!!

op43- No I would not feel the same with that record at KU. as jmatthews said BUFFALO!!!!
My point is you have to look at the body of work. 8 wins in 6 years pre gill, with gill 20-30 in 4 years. I'm not real good at math but that my friend is a helluva job! He had very little D1 talent because lets face it, who wants to go play football at a place where the claim to fame is... wait for it.... The most snowfall annually in the U.S. LOL try to get kids from FL. CA. or TX. to go there.....

What's really funny in this whole thing is you guys think your blood is boiling now..... What happens if in 5 years Bo bolts for OSU and KU is battling for the north year in and year out with Gill? You guys are gonna be ready to Lynch some cornhuskers when they take him back from ya! Appreciate what you have while you have it! He's a helluva coach and I promise you he will be the first call if Bo ever moves on, and he will take the job at NU!

OK what was mangino's record as a head coach before KU?

People Buffalo won 8 games in the 6 years prior to Gill all he did was win 20 in 4 years I say that counts for somthing....

And brother any head coach will tell you he doesn't make call all the time....

And BTW Gill did coach a heisman winner at NU.... I would guess from that he can't coach a lick..... My bad.

I think he is a great hire for any team! KU is lucky to have him! And Jayhawk nation just grew by oh only about 2 million people!

So who all here is gonna come back and eat crow when Gill proves you wrong? Or will you all just run your mouths and then jump on the bandwagon when he wins next year?
I will say it right now, next years team will have a winning record and be in a bowl game with a lot less tallent than it had this year! Write it down, take a picture IDGAF!!!!
