Kansas gets approval to talk to Turner Gill

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Turner Gill is generating interest in the Big 12 Conference again, only not at his former school Nebraska, but Kansas.

The University at Buffalo athletic department confirmed on Monday that the school had granted Kansas permission to interview Gill regarding its vacant coaching position. Spokesman Paul Vecchio said he did not know whether the two parties had spoken.

Citing an unidentified source, The Buffalo News reported that Gill met with Kansas officials in New York City on Sunday.

Kansas is searching for a new coach after Mark Mangino resigned Thursday in the wake of an investigation into his treatment of players.

Gill's agent, Steve Mooney, was traveling and not immediately available for comment.
