Kansas picks Gill as new coach


December 13, 2009

Buffalo coach Turner Gill has been offered the same job at Kansas, a person familiar with the search told the Associated Press on Saturday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school hadn't announced the move.

Gill is 20-30 in four years with the Bulls. There was no indication when a deal with Gill, a former Nebraska quarterback, might be finalized.

Gill's best season at Buffalo was 2008 when the Bulls won the MAC championship and went to their first bowl in half a century.

A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Gill is best known in the Midwest as a great option quarterback at Nebraska from 1980-83.

•After an Internet report Friday night linked Jim Harbaugh to the Kansas job, Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby said his coach signed a three-year contract extension through the 2014 season "a while ago," but a formal announcement was not yet made.
