Kansas head coach David Beaty looks up at the video board during the fourth quarter, Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 at Memorial Stadium.
Since the day of Jeff Long’s introductory press conference at the University of Kansas in July, the school’s athletic director made it clear his evaluation of the football program and fourth-year head coach David Beaty would truly begin once the season kicked off, on Sept. 1.

Long announced Sunday, the day after KU’s touchdown-less, 27-3 home loss to Iowa State, Beaty will not be retained as head coach at the conclusion of the season. By Benton Smith
