When Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby got off the plane in Lawrence, he was greeted by a group of local reporters. Bowlsby, of course, knew he was not the reason for this welcoming party at the Lawrence Municipal Airport. It marked the second time that reporters were at the airport regarding the coaching search since Kansas Athletic Director Jeff Long announced that David Beaty would not be the head football coach following the conclusion of the 2018 season.
The Big 12 is accepting resumes from expansion candidates.
