Liberty, an Evangelical Christian university in Lynchburg, Va., has named former Kansas coach Turner Gill as its head football coach, the school announced on its Web site late Wednesday night.
Gill, who went 5-19 in two seasons at KU and 20-30 in four seasons at Buffalo, will be introduced at Liberty, a Football Championship Series program, on Thursday afternoon.
“In our search for a new head football coach, almost every advisor recommended Turner Gill,” Liberty chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said in a statement. “Every indication is that he is a perfect fit for Liberty University. His experience is at the level where we would like to take our football program. His Christian faith is strong and sincere and what any new recruit would expect to see in a Liberty University head football coach. I think Liberty University and Turner Gill were made for each other.”
