KU Sports Hour: Initial reactions to the hiring of Lance Leipold as KU's new football coach
First-year KU AD Travis Goff on Friday morning announced the hiring of Buffalo coach Lance Leipold as the new leader of Kansas football.
Leipold comes to Kansas after successful stints and turnarounds at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater and Buffalo and takes over for Les Miles, who left last month amid controversy.
By all accounts, Leipold, 56, is a classic, old-school football coach who likes to let hard work, discipline and humility do his talking for him.
He also has a stellar national reputation and has been in the mix for other Power 5 jobs based off of his successful run at Buffalo and Wisconsin-Whitewater.
With that in mind, here are our initial reactions to the new hire.
