KU Football Coach Turner Gill Has A No-Cell Phone Policy

Kansas Jayhawks head coach Turner Gill is pushing his players to focus on communicating with each other.

Part of the solution has been to take away their cell phones. The players must turn their phones into Gill the day before they come in for a game and they get them back in the locker room after the game.

“Everybody was kind of in shock,” KU wide receiver Daymond Patterson said. “We hadn’t had anything like that in the past years. (Gill) just feels like it’s a business thing. He wants us to focus and be ready for the game and not be thinking about outside things.”

That's one way to handle communication. This way players will be required to actually talk to each other.

It's probably pretty annoying for a player but I can see Gill's point that the 24 hours before the game they should be completely focused.
