LAWRENCE — The bird is back.

Kansas football coach Charlie Weis unveiled five new helmets on Monday, with four of them featuring the Jayhawk logo. The fifth helmet is a throwback baby blue version with white numbers on the side.
The blue, white and black helmets all feature the modern Jayhawk logo, while a red version has the famous “1941” World War II-era “Warhawk.”
For most of the past two decades, during the Glen Mason and Mark Mangino eras, the KU football helmets have featured different versions of “KU” lettering.
KU currently has five jersey options in the same colors as the new helmets, so the Jayhawks now have 25 jersey-helmet combinations to use.
