It’s been nearly a decade since Kansas football last sported a winning season and during that time five different coaches have guided the Jayhawks program to 28-93 record. For his part, Beaty is 3-33 since taking over back in 2015. While the program has shown improvements on the recruiting trail under Beaty, those resources have yet to produce tangible results on the field. Making matters worse, athletics director Sheahon Zenger was fired in May by Kansas chancellor Douglas Girod, who stated that football was a primary concern moving forward. Beaty needs a glimmer of hope this season if he doesn’t want to wind up following Zenger out the door.

Three years into constructing, or reconstructing, a Kansas Jayhawk program that six years before hed been ranked among the nation’s top 25, but had headed into the depths of darkness under Turner Gill and Charlie Weis, Beaty is still trying to build those blocks to establish a foundation for a successful KU team.

When he thinks of all he put into his tenure as Kansas athletic director, he thinks about the words of football coaching legend Vince Lombardi: “I firmly believe that any man's finest hour — his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear — is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.”

For Kansas football to succeed, its next coach must be able to afford to fail -
The conclusion is important for Kansas, the Big 12 and really all of college football. KU is in the process of hiring an athletic director who will most likely have to hire a football coach for what is arguably the worst program in the country.
