New Kansas athletic director Jeff Long understands the importance of family. Long, who has spent more than two decades in athletics, knows how hard it can be for those working in this field to spend time with their respective families. That’s why Long told Kansas coaches to not change any vacation plans in order to attend his introductory press conference Wednesday morning at the Lied Center Pavilion.
