Check out the roster here:

Matt Tait: Chip Lindsey departure doesn't have to spell doom and gloom for Kansas football

The wording on that was off in the original post. To be clear, Lindsey had reportedly interviewed with Tennessee before coming to KU.

On list of college football's top Power Five coaches, David Beaty finishes last

Hi, Bryson. When a national website publishes such a list and Beaty appears on it part of my job involves writing about that.

I have no reason to be "mad" at Beaty, by the way, so please don't claim that I am. Also, how much/how in depth I'm able to write about KU football coincides with how much access the program chooses go give the media. If press conferences, open practice windows and interview sessions are brief I get what I can out of them and write. I also have to stockpile some quotes for the months ahead when players/coaches won't be available for interviews.

Thanks. Have a good one.
