Turner Gill

Turner Gill played his college football at Nebraska, taking over the starting quarterback job in his second season in 1981.  Nebraska went to the Orange Bowl that year, but a leg injury kept Gill out of the game.  In his third season in 1982, Nebrask went 12-1 and then made a return to the Orange Bowl in 1984 under Gill's leadership where they narrowly lost the national title to Miami.  Gill finished fourth in voting for the Heisman Trophy in that senior year.  Gill signed as a free agent with Montreal in February of 1984, playing two seasons as their starting QB.  After his playing days were over, Gill started a coaching career in 1989, making a number of stops as an assistant coach, including back at his Alma Matter of Nebraska.  Gill got his first head coaching job with the University of Buffalo in 2005, and in December, 2009 was announced as the new head coach at Kansas.
