As we edge closer to the spring game on April 25th, let's take a look at what players remain, who has come on board, and who will coach the 2015 Jayhawk Wide Receivers.

The new Wide Receivers Coach is the youngest of them all. The son of NFL’s Gary Kubiak, Klint Kubiak comes to the Jayhawks 6 years removed from roaming the secondary for the Colorado State Rams. Kubiak’s first coaching job was with Texas A&M in 2011, when they were installing their hurry-up offense under Sumlin. More recently, Kubiak was the Quality Control/Assistant Wide Receivers Coach for the Minnesota Vikings.

Kubiak is starting from scratch this season. 96% of the receptions hauled in during the 2014 season were caught by players no longer on the roster.  Rodriguez Coleman (Sr.) is the Jayhawk’s most productive returning receiver with 37 yards in 2014. Kubiak is being very tight lipped about who has impressed during spring practice in an attempt to keep the WRs focused and competitive.  Expect the underclassmen to make a steep impact on this position battle throughout spring and into the season.

Here is the current WR roster:
