The Kansas Jayhawks football program is a college football team that represents the University of Kansas in the Big 12 Conference in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The team has had 36 head coaches and one interim head coach since it started playing organized football in 1890 with the nickname Jayhawks.[1] They played their first season without a head coach. Kansas joined the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1907. After several changes, the conference eventually became the Big Eight Conference. The Jayhawks became a charter member of the Big 12 in 1996 when the Big Eight disbanded.[2] The Jayhawks have played in 1,179 games during their 120 seasons. In those seasons, seven coaches have led Kansas to postseason bowl games: George Sauer, Jack Mitchell, Pepper Rodgers, Don Fambrough, Bud Moore, Glen Mason and Mark Mangino. Four coaches have won conference championships with the Jayhawks: A. R. Kennedy, Bill Hargiss, Sauer and Rodgers.

Mason is the all-time leader in games coached (102) and is tied with Mitchell for most years coached with nine. Kennedy is the all-time leader in total wins with 52. Fielding H. Yost has the highest winning percentage of any Jayhawk coach with a 10–0 record (1.000) his only year. Of coaches who served more than one season, Wylie G. Woodruff leads with a .833 winning percentage. Bob Valesente is, in terms of winning percentage, the worst coach the Jayhawks have had (.205). Of the 36 Kansas coaches, Yost is the only one that has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Mangino won several coach of the year accolades after the 2007 season, the only Jayhawks coach to do so. The current coach is Charlie Weis, who was hired in December 2011.[3]

NotesEdit

  1. Kansas did not join a conference until 1907.
  2. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[4]
  3. When computing the win–loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.[5]
  4. Adrian Lindsey took over for Bill Hargiss midway through the 1932 season.
  5. Tom Hayes was named the interim head coach after Terry Allen was fired in November 2001.[7]
