Gill announces new Kansas coaching staff

New Kansas football coach Turner Gill has finished the hiring of his coaching staff with the announcement of six new coaches.

Joining Gill’s staff are offensive line coach J.B. Grimes, running backs coach/recruiting coordinator Reggie Mitchell, cornerbacks coach Vic Shealy, safeties coach Robert Wimberly, defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt and co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Darrell Wyatt.

Mitchell and Darrell Wyatt both coached previously at Kansas.

Gill previously had hired co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Chuck Long, defensive coordinator Carl Torbush and tight ends/special teams coordinator Aaron Stamm.

Considering the circumstances of throwing the staff together quickly, Gill did an admirable job in cobbling together a respected staff that is loaded with recruiting ties throughout the Big 12 area.

The 10 full-time staff members, including Gill, have combined to coach 213 seasons and 72 bowl games at the collegiate level. Four members of the staff -- Long, Torbush, Gill and Shealy -- have spent a combined 15 years as a college head coach.
