Mark Mangino has resigned as head football coach at the University of Kansas, effective immediately.
Athletics Director Lew Perkins released the following statement on KU's website Thursday night:
"We appreciate the eight years that Mark has given to rebuilding our football program. He and I have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement that reflects the appreciation we have for his efforts on behalf of Kansas Football."
"As you know we have recently completed an internal review of the football program. I have been instructed by legal counsel that we cannot release any documents related to this investigation, nor any details regarding our settlement agreement. The investigation and settlement agreement will remain part of Mark's personnel records."
"Mark has brought much success to the football program at KU," Perkins continued. "He can leave with confidence that he has turned the football program around and set it on a path to even greater future success."
