Appreciative of chancellor's endorsement, Beaty says KU football in 'middle' of his plan

According to David Beaty, he didn’t expect Monday to have University of Kansas chancellor Douglas Girod declare support for him as the football coach, while doing the same for athletic director Sheahon Zenger and the current direction of the program. Beaty unsurprisingly said at his weekly press conference Tuesday Girod’s endorsement “means a ton” to the him, his staff and the players. By Benton Smith

Beaty prefers not to reveal how many KU football players on scholarship

Nearing the conclusion of his third year, head coach David Beaty said following the Jayhawks’ home loss to Baylor the Bears were in “nowhere near” as bad a situation in the first year under coach Matt Rhule as KU was two seasons earlier, when he took over. According to Beaty, the team he coached in 2015 season was down “30-plus scholarships.” So how many scholarship players is Kansas up to right now? The Jayhawks’ head coach declined to answer that question Monday. By Benton Smith

Beaty: Jayhawks have 'great opportunity' in prime time at No. 4 TCU

Loss would tie KU for all-time worst road streak

Third-year head coach David Beaty would disagree. By Benton Smith
