Charlie Weis fired as KU football coach

KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger made the announcement in a news release issued at 9 a.m. Sunday. On Saturday, KU lost 23-0 to the Texas Longhorns in Lawrence. Weis had blamed the offensive passing game for the loss, and his comments in news conferences had upset some alumni.


Seems like he just does not do well as the top dog.

Stupid move. Should have waited until the end of the season. Now Kansas has no legs to stand on whatsoever.

I personally think that Kansas got blanked for wearing those hideous red uniforms.

Disagree. They were a 2-10 team whether they fired Weis or not. Looking ahead, they don't have another W on their schedule unless they seriously luck out. Even Texas Tech is going to use them. I say let their DC audition for the job. Couldn't do much worse.

He was a godawful coach who rode to notoriety on Tom Brady's arm and has misfired everywhere else. I was astonished that Kansas picked him up in the first place given how badly he wet the bed at Notre Dame.

I think it was a good move, though difficult. First - it announces there is a job opening. Coaches that might be interested don't have to wait for the end of the season. It also signals to recruits that enough is enough and a change is coming.

Kansas was a good program under Mangino. They can be good again.

They should have never fired him in the first place.

Well, abetting academic fraud, ongoing misconduct, and flouting the campus police might have had something to do with it.

That's rich. An SEC fan on his high horse pertaining to ethics.

Well done.

Seriously? Note that I didn't really adopt a holier-than-thou attitude in my post. All I'm doing is pointing out that Mangino racked up an impressive record for running afoul of the rules in a short time.

But, Dude, the Big12 isn't exactly a pillar of ethics. While this chart is two years old, it shows that the Big12 is roughly neck-and-neck with the SEC in terms of malfeasance.

Okay. That was easy. Thanks for playing.

They should never have fired Mangino. He was a victim of societys obsession with political corectness and not hurting anyones feelings.
