Turner Gill Relieved Of Duties As Kansas Football Coach

Lawrence, Kan. — Turner Gill has been relieved of his duties as head football coach at the University of Kansas, KU Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger announced Sunday. Gill has coached the Jayhawks for two seasons after signing a five-year, $10 million contract in December 2009.

“After a thorough evaluation of our football program,” Zenger said, “I have concluded that new leadership is necessary to place us on the path toward competing for championships in the Big 12 Conference. 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.”

Zenger, who informed Gill of his decision late Sunday afternoon, said a national search for Gill’s successor will begin immediately. “I have no specific timetable,” he said. “Naturally I would like to have a new coach on board as soon as possible.” Zenger has named recruiting coordinator Reggie Mitchell as interim head coach.

Kansas Athletics owes Gill some $6 million for the remaining three years of his contract; Zenger said Kansas will fulfill the terms of that contract.

“We are striving for excellence across KU’s academic and research missions, and that drive extends to all of our athletic programs,” said KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. “In consulting with Athletics Director Zenger, I agree that in order to achieve the excellence we seek in Kansas Football it is time to make a leadership change. Turner Gill is a man of integrity and we appreciate his service to our community.”

The current staff will continue to recruit under the direction of Mitchell.

B&B vs. Thunder Ridge – A Statistical Breakdown from Dusty Deines

KD Country 94 Sports Director Dusty Deines has some interesting tidbits about this Saturdays contest in Newton between the Baileyville B&B Falcons and the Thunder Ridge Longhorns. These were originally posted as Twitter updates:

  • For those way behind or away from the area, Thunder Ridge has been in existence for 4 years. Consolidation of Kensington & Eastern Heights.
  • Last time a team that was located in Kensington played in the State Championship, the K-Town Goldbugs beat B&B 52-6 in 1994.
  • In the consolidation, Kensington has 3 state championship appearances. Won 8-Man in 1979, Runner-Up in DII in 1993, Champ in DII in 1994.
  • In the consolidation, Agra/Eastern Heights never made it to a State Championship game.
  • The numbers I’m about to shoot out about B&B are staggering. They have to be considered one of the top 5 schools to ever play KS 8-Man FB.
  • This will be B&B’s 11th State Championship Appearance. They are 3-7 in their previous 10. Three were 11-Man games, the other 7 were 8-Man.
  • B&B won State Championships in 1982 (1A-11-Man), 2008 (8-Man DI) & 2010 (8-Man DII).
  • This will be the 4th straight State Championship appearance for B&B. Won DI in ’08 and DII in ’10 as mentioned. Lost DI in ’09.
  • B&B is the first team to play in 4 straight 8-Man title games since Hanston played in 7 in a row from 1998-2004.
  • B&B is 1 of 5 schools to play in at least 4 straight 8-Man Titles. Hanston, Claflin (4-89-92), No. Valley (5-86-90), Midway-Denton (5-84-88).
  • If you’re tired of old history, how about some recent history for B&B. This is their 5th straight playoff birth.
  • B&B has won 49 of its last 50 games from 2008-11 and 56 of its last 60 games from 2007-11. Its last regular season loss was 9/21/2007.
  • Other notes on 8-Man State Championships. B&B (DII) and Madison (DI) both have a chance to repeat as champs. Last repeat: Hanover (08-09).
  • Last time both teams repeated? Midway-Denton & Northern Valley in 1986 & 1987. NV won DI then DII, M-D won DII then DI.
