The Mark Mangino saga — and era — is apparently over at Kansas, both the Wichita Eagle and ESPN.com are reporting.
According to ESPN.com‘s Joe Schad, Mangino is out and will not return as the Jayhawks’ coach next season. The Eagle is reporting the same, and is also reporting that Mangino and the school have reached an agreement on a settlement.
The team is expected to be notified of the news at a meeting this evening.
Kansas players and assistant coaches were meeting with athletic director Lew Perkins inside the Jayhawks’ football complex, and an announcement is expected this evening. Shortly after 6 p.m. [CT], coaches and players and Perkins arrived at the complex. Mangino was not seen.
Mangino has been the subject of an investigation since the middle of last month over his alleged treatment of players.
