Kansas has fired football coach Mark Mangino for being a fat, abusive jerk. Oh yeah, and losing seven straight games. KU was investigating Mangino over charges that he struck and emotionally abused players as well as running up a bunch of parking tickets.
Mangino will always be known for leading Jayhawks football to a 12 win season and an Orange Bowl ictory in 2007. He was also national coach of the year and beat Nebraska for the first time in nearly 40 years. Kansas won as many bowl games in four years under Mangino as the previous 100 without him.
Mangino also inspired the greatest infant Halloween costume of all-time: Baby Mangino
