In a message he sent to University of Kansas students and faculty members Monday afternoon and posted on the university’s website, chancellor Douglas Girod stated his confidence in both athletic director Sheahon Zenger and KU football coach David Beaty. “Nobody denies the challenges we are having on the field, but I maintain my belief that Sheahon and Coach Beaty have the right long-term vision and are doing things the right way,” Girod wrote. “Our focus now is empowering them with the tools they need to fulfill their vision.” The endorsement of Beaty, now 3-31 as the Jayhawks’ coach, and Zenger, who hired Beaty and his predecessor, Charlie Weis (6-22), came in a message titled “Football and our national aspirations.” In Beaty’s nearly three seasons on the job, Kansas has defeated just one Big 12 or FBS opponent, Texas (2016).
