After taking Kansas to its best record in school history, Mark Mangino was named by his Big 12 peers as the league's coach of the year Tuesday.

KU finished the regular season 11-1 in Mangino's sixth year, losing in the finale to Missouri on Saturday.

"I feel privileged to be recognized by my peers," Mangino said. "This honor is really a reflection of our entire coaching staff and we are all very appreciative."

Mangino and Missouri coach Gary Pinkel split the award in voting by the Associated Press, also announced Tuesday.
