Turner Gill fired by Kansas Jayhawks; KU willing to pay Gill $6 million to go away
The Kansas Jayhawks fired football coach Turner Gill on Sunday, a day after KU fell to the Missouri Tigers in the final gridiron installment of the Border War.
Gill was only in year two as coach of the Jayhawks, winning just two games this season and losing every conference game.
“After a thorough evaluation of our football program, I have concluded that new leadership is necessary to place us on the path toward competing for championships in the Big 12 Conference,” KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger said in a statement. “I come to this conclusion reluctantly, because I have the utmost respect for Turner Gill as a quality individual who wants only the best for the young men he coaches.”
