KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas fired head coach Turner Gill on Sunday after two losing seasons and with three years remaining on a contract that still owes him about $6 million.
The school announced the move in a news release Sunday, the day after the Jayhawks lost 24-10 to rival Missouri and finished the season 2-10.
The former Husker star quarterback was 5-19 at Kansas. He was hired by Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger's predecessor, Lew Perkins, and given a five-year, $10 million contract.
The university says Zenger informed Gill of his decision late Sunday afternoon. He also said he would honor the terms of Gill's deal.
Gill came to Kansas from Buffalo, a perennially downtrodden Mid-American Conference team that he led to a league championship. At Kansas, he replaced Mark Mangino, who was fired in 2009 amid allegations he mistreated players.
