Bubba Cunningham, Kansas Reportedly Finalizing Contract As Next Athletic Director

The Kansas Jayhawks are close to getting their next athletic director.

Reportedly.

Sports By Brooks, who first reported the news that Tulsa's Bubba Cunningham would be the next athletic director at Kansas, says the contract between the two sides is being finalized. 

Bubba and KU Chancellor finalizing contract this morning. It will happen regardless of when it's announced.

Since Brooks' original report, the Tulsa World, Lawrence Journal-World and Kansas City Star have reported Cunningham is the next athletic director at Kansas.

The reaction on sports talk radio here in Kansas City following the original reports of Cunningham to KU have been mixed. Some have said: "Who?" While others have said people in the know have good things to say about Cunningham.

We'll see how it works when KU finally announces the deal.
