KU Football Coach Mangino to speak June 7 at alumni luncheon in Wichita

LAWRENCE — University of Kansas Head Football Coach Mark Mangino will speak to KU alumni and friends at a luncheon from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 7, at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita.

Sponsored by Kansas Athletics Inc. and the KU Alumni Association, the event will include a sneak peek into the 2006-07 season. Mangino will discuss new players, returning Jayhawks and tough opponents.

The lunch with Mangino is part of the Alumni Association’s Wichita chapter activities and was coordinated by chapter leaders Sue Watson and Jeff Kennedy. The cost to members of the Alumni Association, Williams Educational Fund or K-Club is $20 per person. Guests and spouses are welcome to attend. The cost for nonmembers is $30 per person. For more information or to make reservations, visit www.kualumni.org and click on “Alumni Events” or contact Sarah Lingeman at (800) 548-2957. Reservations must be received by June 1.

Mangino is in his fifth season with the Jayhawks. Last year, his team ended the season with a Fort Worth Bowl win. In February, he signed 21 high school seniors to the team, including Jake Sharp of Salina. ESPN.com ranked his 2006 class 36th among all NCAA Division 1 teams — the highest ranking in the Mangino era.
