Sound Off: Former football coaches
<b>How are former Kansas University football coaches Mark Mangino’s and Turner Gill’s teams doing at their new schools?</b>
Mangino is in his first year as assistant head coach/tight ends coach on the staff of Youngstown State head coach Eric Wolford. The Penguins play in the Missouri Valley Conference, a Football Championship Series (Div. 1-AA) league. They are 6-1 with their only loss coming to Football Bowl Subdivision school Michigan State. YSU is tied for first in the Missouri Valley Conference with two-time defending national champion North Dakota State. Both schools are 3-0. The schools meet Nov. 16.
Gill inherited a Liberty University football program that had won at least a share of four consecutive Big South titles. The Big South also is in the FCS (Div. 1-AA). His Flames finished second in the conference in 2012 and tied for first in 2013. This year’s team is 3-3 and begins its five-game conference schedule Saturday. Gill’s overall record at Liberty is 16-12.
