No college football matchup in 2020 is a certainty, but this week’s Kansas football game at Baylor feels more in limbo than most, with the Bears having to call off what would have been their season opener versus Houston this past weekend.
Each of the three newest assistant coaches hired earlier this year to join Les Miles’ University of Kansas football staff signed a six-year contract, with only the first two years guaranteed.
With the Kansas football team’s 2020 signing class finally complete, head coach Les Miles looked at the long list of high school players he and his assistants spent the past year recruiting and didn’t mind sharing his sense of satisfaction. “This has been,” Miles said during a Thursday press conference, while knocking his fist on the wooden lectern in front of him, “the kind of class that we needed.” By Benton Smith
