Mark Mangino has removed himself from consideration to be the next head football coach of the Colorado Buffaloes. The coach made the announcement himself via Twitter:
I have asked that my name be taken out of consideration for the Colorado position. I wish the school & next coach great success!— Mark Mangino (@KeepSawinWood) November 29, 2012
Colorado's search for a football coach continues following the school's dismissal of former player Jon Embree after two seasons. Embree led the Buffaloes to a 4-21 record in his two seasons at the helm.
Mangino has been out of the coaching circle since 2009, when he and Kansas agreed to a buyout after an investigation over verbal abuse of his players. Mangino coached Kansas for eight seasons, tallying a 50-48 record. He led the Jayhawks to four bowl games, including an Orange Bowl win that capped a 12-1 season in 2007.
Mangino has also been linked to the job opening at Purdue.
