Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star is reporting good reason for Jayahwks fans to watch just where Turner Gills lands - he's reporting that per a deal cut with former athletic director Lew Perkins, Gill would be owed the entirety of his contract, even if he signs another coaching deal.
That means in addition to signing a new head coach, the Jayhawks will owe Gill the entirety of his $6 million deal signed under Perkins. That's a hefty price tag that could complicate KU's ability to land a top coach moving forward. Mellinger also mentions that, in a stroke of irony, Perkins is now working as a consultant for college football programs and athletic departments.
