Kansas football coach Mark Mangino resigned Thursday night after he and the school reached a financial agreement on his departure, according to ESPN's Joe Schad. It is not known what the terms of the agreement are, but if Mangino had strictly been fired for performance reasons he would have collected $6.6 million remaining on his contract; if he had been fired for cause, as the school had reportedly threatened to do, he would have collected nothing. Mangino had reportedly been under investigation for his treatment of players.
