A man with a plan: KU's Beaty hit the recruiting ground running

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Rome wasn't built in a day, but, then again, Rome didn't have David Beaty fronting the band, either. The new football coach at the University of Kansas wrangled five oral commitments over the weekend -- his first since being formally introduced -- and seven since last Friday, as well as a reported 11 visits. Man works fast. Man might have to. "I'll tell you what...

David Beaty introduced as coach at Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- David Beaty was introduced as Kansas' third coach in the past five years Monday, promising to rebuild the long-stagnant program through "hard work and earning everything." Beaty was hired Friday to replace Charlie Weis, who was fired four games into his third season on the job. Beaty wasted no time in announcing that Clint Bowen, who had been serving as interim...

Kansas Swings for the Fences By Hiring David Beaty

When Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger set out to find the replacement for Charlie Weis, he likely hearkened back to the glory days of the Jayhawks’ run to the 2008 Orange Bowl. That team was led by a tough, rugged head coach with a keen eye for detail, and was largely built on the backs of solid but mostly overlooked Texas recruits. At the end of the day, Zenger had his...

Florida President To McElwain: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis As OC”

University of Florida Bernie Machen sounds confident in the hire of Jim McElwain as head coach, but he’s leerie of who his new coach will choose to become offensive coordinator. In 2011 Will Muschamp hired Charlie Weis as his first offensive coordinator. Florida went 6-6 that regular season, finishing 105th in the nation in total offense (332.7 yards per game) and 71st in scoring...

Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis”

The major failing of Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida’s offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn’t leave a great impression...

While Weis pitched his past, Beaty can sell KU's football future

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- The hot mid-major whiffed. The offensive wizard left his wand in the golf cart. So this time around, Kansas football is going cast its lot with a salesman. Which, in hindsight, Charlie Weis was not. And is not. And never will be. Weis' big pitch was to say something clipped and funny and Jersey and flash his Super Bowl rings, or Tom Brady's cell number, or some...

Kansas Jayhawks Need To Keep Clint Bowen

The almost should-have-been near upset of TCU would never have happened if Charlie Weis was still the Kansas Jayhawks head football coach. Clint Bowen deserved to keep the job before Saturday, he deserves to keep it just because of Saturday, and he will continue to find ways to deserve it the rest of the season.  Opposing coaches know it and everybody who’s seen KU football recently...

Ohio State LB calls ESPN.com headline “trash” for questionable narrative

Even now that we’re in the age of the committee, narratives still matter in college football.  That’s why what took place on ESPN.com over the course of Saturday was enough to raise a few eyebrows.  It shows that all it takes is a couple of words and subtle implications to get the juices flowing. #8 Ohio State went on the road and defeated #25 Minnesota 31-24.  The Buckeyes...

Jayhawks rallying around interim coach Bowen

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) During a practice shortly after he was appointed interim coach at Kansas, Clint Bowen lined up next to his players on the sideline and took off at the first whistle. He was running sprints with them. And not just one or two players, all of them. Imagine Charlie Weis doing that. It was the first of many instances in which Bowen bridged a disconnect that developed...

Photo: Kansas Fans Are Campaigning For Mark Mangino To Return As Football Coach With A Yard Sign

Looking back, Mark Mangino’s tenure at Kansas is even more remarkable than it seemed at the time. Mangino won at least six games five times in his eight year run. In 2007, his team went 12-1, which included an Orange Bowl win, his third bowl victory with the Jayhawks. KU has not won more than three games in a season since his ouster.  Mangino’s ouster in Lawrence was for very...
