Apparently the Beakers have no patience, as they'll pay Turner Gill $6 million to not coach.
"But he's a LOSER" Beaker fans will cry out.
Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald puts this decision in context:
"The first number is Mack Brown’s record after two years at North Carolina.
"The second number is Frank Beamer’s record after two tears at Virginia Tech.
"The third number is Kirk Ferentz’s record after two years at Iowa.
"The fourth number is Gene Chizik’s record after two years at Iowa State – which he turned into the Auburn job.
"The 5-19 mark is also what Turner Gill posted in two years at Kansas. He got fired for it."
End quote from Sam McKewon.
Two years is not enough time to evaluate a coach, barring something else unseemly. Turner Gill may not be Mack Brown, Frank Beamer, Kirk Ferentz, or Gene Chizik...but then, Kansas will never know.
But hey, if winning is all you care about, Beakers, Jim Tressel is available.
