Sports gambling has seen quite a fall for former Jayhawk head coach Mark Mangino, who resigned under fire following the 2009 gambling sports season. Mangino was under heavy attack from the media and by some former players for being abusive. It probably wouldn’t have been such a sports gambling story had Mangino’s Jayhawks not lost their final 7 consecutive gambling sports matchups of 2009.
The sports betting expectations were sky high for KU as they were touted as the team to beat in the Big 12 North this year. Mangino was quickly replaced by Turner Gill, who was the head coach at the University of Buffalo.
Gill led the Bisons to the Mid American Conference championship in the 2008 sports gambling season and received accolades for turning around a hopeless program into a solid MAC contender. That being said he had only one winning sports gambling season and that has been a concern to some Kansas faithful.
Gill will bring a positive approach to the Jayhawks for the 2010 sports gambling season. Kansas will run the spread offense but also not be afraid to employ two backs and go the smash mouth route when necessary.
Gill was a star quarterback for the Big 12 Nebraska Cornhuskers in the early 1980’s when they were known throughout sports gambling as the Big Red Scoring Machine. Gill made it clear that he wants to build a sports gambling dynasty in Lawrence, KS and has no plans to ever leave.
“I’ve been asked if I’m taking this job to get to another program. The answer to that is a very decisive ‘no’”, said Gill. “I’m not here to use it as a stepping stone to a football dynasty, but rather to create a football dynasty here at KU.”
Kansas will have experienced coordinators for the 2010 sports gambling season as Chuck Long will handle the offense while Carl Torbush will call defensive shots. Both are highly regarded. Gill will make close to $2 million per year to lead KU football.
