The SportsXchange

Mark Mangino, who resigned as Kansas' head coach following the 2009 season, has returned to coaching as an assistant football coach at Youngstown State.

He will serve as assistant head coach and tight ends coach at his alma mater.

"This is a homecoming for me," Mangino said in a statement. "I'm delighted to be at a great school with a great football tradition with a team and coach poised to do great things. Every coaching job I have ever taken was a rebuilding project, but this program is not rebuilding. This program has the potential to have a very good year and that's a credit to Eric Wolford, his staff and his team.

"I am a big believer in Coach Wolford's 'no shortcuts' approach that focuses on getting results on and off the field. This school is near and dear to my heart and I'll work very hard with Coach Wolford to get the job done."

Mangino was the head coach at Kansas from 2002 to 2009 and had a 50-48 record before resigning following an internal investigation of his alleged mistreatment of football players.

In the 2007 season, the Jayhawks went 12-1, including an Orange Bowl victory.
