Second-year Kansas running backs coach Tony Hull sent shockwaves through the college football recruiting world last week by landing a large group of commitments from Louisiana, his home state.

On Wednesday, KU head coach David Beaty announced on Twitter that Hull was promoted to associate head coach.

"Tony's recruiting prowess speaks for itself, but he is more than just a dynamic recruiter," Beaty said. "Tony is a great football coach and his positive impact on this team is felt on a daily basis."

The Jayhawks have landed seven non-binding, oral commitments in the class of 2018 — including six from Louisiana. Each of the recruits from the Bayou State are three- or four-star prospects.

What are the differences between associate head coach and assistant head coach?

DeWeese, I don't think it really means anything more than an added title for a higher pay grade. I'm sure there's a seniority thing involved.

Coach Beaty is a cool dude, I love his people/relationship skills and it sounds like coach Hull is cut from the same cloth. Great timing!
