Kansas coach David Beaty spoke to reporters following the team's loss to Texas Friday afternoon at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. It marked Beaty's final game of his coaching career at KU, which lasted four seasons.

With the loss, Kansas (3-9, 1-8) wrapped up its 10th consecutive losing season. Beaty finished off his four-year career as the KU head coach with a 6-42 overall record, including just 2-34 against conference foes.

KU coach David Beaty disappointed with loss to Kansas State

Head coach David Beaty spoke to reporters following KU's 21-17 loss to Kansas State Saturday afternoon at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Jayhawks have now lost 10 consecutive meetings with the Wildcats.

"It was a back-and-forth game there in the second half and they did what exactly they needed to do to make enough plays to win it and we were not able to do that," Beaty said. "That's unfortunate because I felt like we had a pretty good showing for most of the day, but that's why you play all four quarters, every minute of each on of them."

K-State coach Bill Snyder earned his 23rd win over Kansas.
