"We appreciate the eight years that Mark has given to rebuilding our football program," Kansas Athletics Director Lew Perkins said. "He and I have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement that reflects the appreciation we have for his efforts on behalf of Kansas Football.
"As you know we have recently completed an internal review of the
football program. I have been instructed by legal counsel
that we cannot release any documents related to this investigation, nor
any details regarding our settlement agreement. The
investigation and settlement agreement will remain part of Mark's
"Mark has brought much success to the football program at KU," Perkins
continued. "He can leave with confidence that he has turned
the football program around and set it on a path to even greater future
"As always, our principal concern remains our
student-athletes. Coaches David Beaty, Clint Bowen and Bill
Miller will share interim head-coaching duties. I have the
utmost confidence in their abilities and dedication."
Perkins said his focus is now the search for a new head
coach. "I know people will float a number of names out
there," he said, "but I will not comment on any potential
candidates. I can only tell you I am certain that great
things lie ahead for our Kansas football program. There's a great buzz
surrounding Kansas Football; we have great fans and facilities, and
we've demonstrated a strong commitment to the success of our program."
