LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas has fired football coach David Beaty, effective at the end of the season, ending a three-plus year tenure marked by modest improvement but just a handful of wins.
Kansas (3-6) has three games left to play against Kansas State, No. 6 Oklahoma and No 15 Texas.
News that Beaty would be let go began filtering out Saturday night, shortly after the Jayhawks looked unprepared and uninspired in a 27-3 loss to Iowa State. The defeat left Beaty with a record of 6-39 with just three wins against Power Five opponents and two Big 12 victories.
New athletic director Jeff Long announced the firing Sunday with one year left on Beaty’s contract. Beaty is owed $3 million.
