Mangino's contract a sweet deal

I think Mark Mangino has done a good job in his four-plus years as football coach at Kansas.

But he hasn't done the kind of great job that his unbelievable contract extension -- which includes a raise from $650,000 annually to $1.5 million -- indicates.

The Jayhawks are 20-29 under Mangino. And while it's true he didn't inherit much from the previous coach, Terry Allen, since when does 20-29 earn that kind of raise?

I understand KU's desire for stability with the football program. And I think there's a chance Mangino will get it done over the long haul.

But what happened to rewarding performance?

The perks in Mangino's contract include two top-of-the-line automobiles and memberships to two country clubs.

I want his agent.
