Gill Announces Roster Changes

Aug. 23, 2011

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football head coach Turner Gill addressed two personnel changes regarding the Jayhawk football roster here Tuesday afternoon.

Gill first announced that freshman quarterback Brock Berglund will no longer be taking part in practice during the fall semester, but will remain a member of the Kansas football team.

“Due to legal issues, Brock will no longer be attending practices with the team this fall,” said Gill. “He will remain enrolled as a KU student, and plans to resume all team activities in the spring semester.”

Additionally, Gill announced that due to a violation of team policies, sophomore running back Deshaun Sands has been removed from the team effective immediately.

Sands played in 10 games as a redshirt freshman in 2010, gaining 211 yards on 55 carries, with one touchdown. He picked up Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year honors in 2009, while sitting out the season as a redshirt.

The Jayhawks will open the season Saturday, Sept. 3, when they play host to McNeese State. KU-MSU will kick-off at 6 p.m., at Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium. Tickets are available via the web at, by calling 1-800-34-HAWKS or by stopping by the ticket office on the southeast corner of Allen Fieldhouse.
