UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS

Kansas Athletics has filed a motion in federal court to dismiss a lawsuit from former KU head football coach David Beaty that claims the athletic department owes him $3 million. As first reported by the Kansas City Star, lawyers representing Kansas Athletics filed this past Friday in the U.S. District Court of Kansas a motion for dismissal of Beaty’s lawsuit for, in part, a “lack of subject matter jurisdiction.” The motion included a 101-page memo that included arguments, exhibits, documentation and more. KU Athletic Director Jeff Long fired Beaty with three games remaining in the 2018 season, Beaty’s fourth year in charge of the program. Per the contract extension Beaty signed in 2016, if Kansas Athletics fired him without cause, he would be owed $3 million. Filed in March, Beaty’s lawsuit alleges a breach of contract and unpaid wages of $3 million owed to him. A spokesperson for the KU athletic department, Jim Marchiony, told the Journal-World on Monday that KU had no comment regarding the motion for dismissal. He also said KU had no update to provide on the NCAA’s investigation into alleged possible violations committed by Beaty when he was the head coach at KU. – Benton Smith, kusports – Read More
