In newly obtained response to NCAA allegations, former football coach Beaty says KU 'concocted' violations against him

Unbeknownst to the public, former Kansas football coach David Beaty issued a response in his personal capacity to the Notice of Allegations KU received from the NCAA in September 2019. In it, Beaty — who went 6-42 in four seasons as the Jayhawks' coach and was fired in November 2018 — says the minor NCAA violations levied against him in the NOA were “concocted” by KU officials and are ultimately the result “of an institutionally initiated investigation” designed to avoid paying him a $3 million contract buyout.
