David Beaty says there was no doubt he would finish the season at Kansas after being informed he would not be retained in 2019. "I'm grateful to [athletic director Jeff Long] that it wasn't even a conversation. He believes and knows that's what our team would want. It's served as less of a distraction than these situations typically would be. … They know it's never been about me. It's always been about them and the great University of Kansas."

Kansas has fired fourth-year coach David Beaty. He will finish out the season for the Jayhawks, who are 3-6 and visit rival Kansas State this week. First-year athletic director Jeff Long says his search for Beaty's replacement begins immediately. He's seeking a coach "who is committed to breaking the cycle" for Kansas football.
