News Of The Day: Kansas’s Mangino Resigns
My prediction that their respective losses two weeks ago would mark the end of their current contracts for Charlie Weis, Mark Mangino and Rich Rodriguez is coming to fruition nicely. News came this past weekend that Notre Dame was cutting ties with Weis. And news came yesterday that Mangino resigned from Kansas.
It looks like a sympathy move by the university to me. Kansas had to get rid of Mangino one way or another, so they let arguably the most successful coach in the school’s history leave gracefully. My guess is that he’ll take a year or two off and land somewhere else that he can rebuild his rep, a la Bob Huggins.
That makes me two-thirds right on the second longest long-term prediction I’ve ever made. I’ll be waiting patiently for news out of Michigan. Come on, RichRod, don’t let me down!
