The news that has been expected for days, ever since Bill Young left for the sunnier winters of Miami, has finally happened. At least, according to Tom Dienhart's sources, whoever they are.
But those sources posted by a national website, along with the widely-accepted fact that Bowen would become the next defensive coordinator barring a severe change-of-heart by Mangino, is enough for me to believe in it.
I love the move, as it keeps continuity and all that jazz, and those with sources inside the football program (not me, just some people on Phog.net) all say that people love him inside the program. Plus, he is a Kansas lifer, and I am glad that he got the job.
More on the hire later, along with official confirmation if it ever occurs, along with my promised-comparison of Kansas and Memphis.
