A widening mess at Kansas

Posted on: November 17, 2009 6:31 pm

Rumors are blowing up about Mark Mangino's job security at Kansas. It was reported earlier Tuesday that the Kansas coach had been the subject of a players-only meeting with AD Lew Perkins Monday night. reported that senior linebacker Arist Wright first went to Perkins to express "concerns" about Mangino. During his weekly press conference on Tuesday Mangino said, "I may have lost some people around here but it's not the players." That was in answer to a question whether the coach had lost the team.

Mangino is in his eighth season at Kansas. The Jayhawks started 5-0 but have lost five in a row headed No. 2 Texas this week.

Wright is a three-year letterman from Houston. I tried reaching his former coach and parents but had no success. Stay tuned, this could get really ugly for a program that won the Orange Bowl two years ago. It certainly doesn't look good coming on the heels of the dispute between the football and basketball players.

Here is a copy of Mangino's contract. There are some conduct clauses in it.
