LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas announced Saturday that former football coach Don Fambrough has died of injuries sustained in a fall at his home in Lawrence. He was 88.

No other coach in Kansas history was so closely associated with the Jayhawks.

The school, which had been in touch with the coach's family, said he died on Saturday. Fambrough either coached or played in five of the nine bowl games Kansas has participated in. He was All-Big Six offensive lineman in 1946 and 1947. He was head coach from 1971-74, then again from 1979-82. His overall record was 37-48-6. He was Big Eight coach of the year in 1981.
