KU Introduces Turner Gill As Football Coach
Kansas City, MO – Turner Gill was introduced Monday as the new head football coach at the University of Kansas.
Gill comes to the Jayhawks from Buffalo, where he guided the Bulls to the Mid-American championship in 2008 and their first bowl game in half-a-century.
He said his first order of business was to address the returning players Monday night.
And he outlined his other top priorities for the football program:
"Recruit... beat Missouri... recruit... win the North... recruit... win the Big-12...as we all know, you win the Big-12, you're playing for a national championship. And they you're going to recruit."
Also present at the news conference was Gill's newly-named offensive coordinator Chuck Long, a former head coach at San Diego State and a former assistant at Oklahoma.
