Is he really the proper physical specimen of a man to motivate young athletes, really? Will he be giving them health & dietary advice or lessons about self discipline & sacrifice? Motivating their training ethics perhaps? This Mangino had better coach his team to a championship the first time out, his presence running a sports team seems hypocritical to me!

YSU is THAT hard up for coaches?

He has a history of boorish, thuggish behavior towards players and fellow staffers alike, back to his days as a HS FB coach.

And his record at Kansas was not that much of a big whoop -- in 8 years there he was 50-48 overall, and a miserable 23-41 against conference opponents.

Big whoop. Not.

And this: "In November 2009, the recurring issue of Mangino's chronic, alleged misconduct towards his players became the subject of an internal investigation by the U. of Kansas Athletic Dept. He was formally accused of boorish and violent actions (e.g., grabbing players in anger/frustration, verbal abuse, etc.). National sports media coverage of this increased already-mounting public pressure on the university to terminate Mangino's employment. After a prolonged period of negotiations, the university and Mangino's attorneys agreed on the buy-out amount that was large enough to secure his quiet resignation in December 2009."

Wow . . .

A lot of do-nothings sure have a lot of negative things to say about a man who hasn't even showed up for his first day of work yet.

Well we've seen the same kind of prejudice against New Jersey's governor. Size does not always = inability to perform work. People!!! Get your heads out of your #####!!! Still..... the only acceptable prejudice remaining is towards those who are overweight. Shame on you!
