ESPN's Joe Schad reports that Mangino has accepted a buyout from Kansas.
This certainly wasn't unexpected, but it is an interesting development for the 2007 National Coach of the Year. He has had some well-documented anger issues -- particularly with referees -- in previous years. This year, he faced allegations that he humiliated players on the field and even poked and grabbed them.
The school conducted an investigation, and the buyout was "satisfactory to all parties," according to the report.
Assistant coaches David Beaty, Clint Bowen and Bill Miller will share interim coaching duties until the season is over.
