We posted nearly a year ago that Mark Mangino, then coaching at Youngstown State, had been watching his weight and had slimmed down by 127 pounds. At that point there were no available FUPA shots. Now there are Mangino FUPA shots. It seems that he’s still down several dozens pounds from the Kansas days when he wasn’t eating very many vegetables besides on a deluxe pizza. The pants are still under immense pressure from the FUPA, but things are looking better for the ball coach.
Mangino is now back in the Big 12 as the Cyclones offensive coordinator. You might remember that his biggest career moment came in 2007 when he took Kansas to the Orange Bowl and turned in one of the better bowl photos in bowl mascot history.
