University of Kansas Head Coach Turner Gill will speak to the Topeka Rotary Club on Thursday.
 A new era of Kansas football began when Turner Gill was named the Jayhawks’ head football coach on Dec. 13, 2009. After turning a one-win Buffalo program into a conference championship team in three short years, Gill, a former Nebraska standout player and assistant coach, returns to his Big 12 Conference roots to take over the Jayhawk program.


Gill was a highly successful quarterback at Nebraska and then spent most of his coaching career with the Huskers helping the program to 13 bowl games in his 13 seasons (1992-2004) on the coaching staff.  After a year in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers (2005), Gill became a head coach, taking over a Buffalo program which had produced more than two wins in just one of the previous seven seasons.
