Gill to be formally introduced as KU's coach on Monday

Turner Gill will be introduced Monday as the new football coach at Kansas, the school announced.

The news conference will be held at noon ET at the school's football complex.

Gill will become the 37th coach in the 120-season history of the program, following in the line of illustrious predecessors like Fielding H. "Hurry Up" Yost and "Phog" Allen.

He will become the first African-American head football coach in the school's history.

Gill had a 20-30 record at Buffalo, but did an outstanding job of making the Bulls' program relevant in the Mid-American Conference. In the process, he took the Bulls to the International Bowl in Toronto last season -- the first bowl trip in Buffalo history.

It looks like he'll be an outstanding fit with the Kansas program.
