Gus Malzahn Candidate At Kansas In Addition To UNC, According To Report

Auburn Tigers offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn has been the popularly reported candidate for the North Carolina Tar Heels job for some time now, but according to ESPN's Joe Schad, you can add the Kansas Jayhawks as contenders for his services.

Joe Schad@schadjoe Auburn OC Gus Malzahn has emerged as a very strong candidate at Kansas and is still a possibility at North Carolina    

There are clear pros and cons to both of those jobs. UNC offers large-school resources and solid recruiting opportunities in a winnable conference, but the NCAA is still about to come crashing down on the Heels. KU would mean the chance to completely re-do a BCS program in the image of Malzahn, but support for football isn't anywhere near as great a priority in Lawrence as it is elsewhere in the Big 12. 

If he turned down the Vanderbilt job, what would make the Kansas gig different?
