Beaty back on the road to promote KU football
Between recruiting, returning to Texas to see his family and touring the state to drum up interest for his new program, Kansas University football coach David Beaty has spent a lot of time on the road since being named KU's newest football coach.
This week, in some of KU's most important recruiting territories, Beaty will be entering a few more miles into his travel log.
Beginning Tuesday in Houston, Beaty will make a few stops to share with KU fans his vision for the program and a state of the program as it stands today.
Beaty will be joined by fellow Jayhawks, members of the KU Alumni Association, KU administration and assistant football coaches for a happy hour to talk about what's next for Kansas Football. Food will be provided with a cash bar. The events are free to the public.
Here's a quick look at the schedule for the week:
• Tuesday — Houston, Texas — 7-9 p.m. at Christian's Tailgate Heights, 2820 White Oak.
• Wednesday — Dallas, Texas — 7-9 p.m. at Henderson Tap House, 2323 N. Henderson Ave.
• Thursday — Denver, Colorado — 7-9 p.m. at Stoney's Bar & Grill, 1111 Lincoln St.
After that, it'll be back to Lawrence to get the team's summer conditioning program and summer camp schedule under way.
While Beaty's away, the Jayhawks themselves will be focusing on this week's final exams.
Good luck to our players and all KU students this week on their finals! Finish strong!! #EarnIt— David Beaty (@beaty_david) May 11, 2015
