Kansas names Lance Leipold to replace Les Miles

Kansas named Buffalo coach Lance Leipold to lead its beleaguered football program on Friday.Leipold received a six-year contract. Financial terms were not announced.”It is an exciting and humbling opportunity, and this is a day I will never forget,” Leipold, 56, said in a school news release. “We are going to build this program through developing players, discipline and determination. The philosophies engrained in our programs along the way will be key as we turn this around.”He replaces Les Miles, who was ousted in March after an investigation showed inappropriate behavior with female students when he coached at LSU.The task ahead of Leipold is a big one. The Jayhawks haven’t played in a bowl game since 2008. And since the departure of coach Mark Mangino after the 2009 season, Kansas is 20-108 under Miles, David Beaty, Charlie Weis, Clint Bowen and Turner Gill.Leipold spent the past six seasons with the Bulls, compiling a 37-33 record. But in the past three seasons, the Bulls were 24-10 and received three bowl bids.
