KU chancellor issues statement on baseless media report

Nov. 20, 2009


LAWRENCE, Kan. — University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little issued the following statement today in response to a baseless media report of a university administration review of Athletics Director Lew Perkins:

“The notion that the university is conducting a review of Lew Perkins is false and completely unfounded. I am confident in the athletics director and his management team’s ability to administer our athletics program in the highly capable and professional manner for which they are known. The review of the football program is consistent with the process outlined in Coach Mark Mangino’s contract. I encourage everyone to wait until this process is completed before drawing any conclusions.”
