LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas coach Mark Mangino has resigned just two years after leading the Jayhawks to the greatest season in their checkered football history.

The university made the announcement Thursday as athletic director Lew Perkins met with players to give them the news.

The school said last month it would investigate Mangino’s treatment of his players. In the following days, many former players described insensitive, humiliating remarks they claim he made to them in the heat of games or practice, often in front of others.
