KU Denies Rumors Of Contract Offered To Harbaugh

The Star is reporting that Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins issued a statement this afternoon putting to rest the rampant rumors about Perkins having offered the KU football coaching job to Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh.

“As we have said in the past, we will not comment on rumors about any potential candidates for the position of head football coach at the University of Kansas,” Perkins said. “Having said that, I will reiterate at this time that the process is ongoing. We have not offered the head coaching position to anyone.”

The Star reported in this morning’s edition that Harbaugh has talked with Perkins about the job and that East Carolina coach Skip Holtz and Buffalo coach Turner Gill have talked to Perkins and are still very much in the running for the job.

Why is KU backing off allegations of this potential hire? Hopefully they are just dancing around a PR nightmare. Harbaugh coming to KU would be a touchdown for the university and local sports. Likewise, being that his wife is from Kansas City, we're sure they'd love to come back for a long stay!
