“Coach Miles did what he does,” University of Kansas AD Jeff Long said at a news conference Thursday. “I mean, he’s a players’ coach, he develops young people, and then we know him as an excellent recruiter, and I think we’re going to see that play out. I think we’re getting the experienced, national championship-winning coach that we expected to get.” “We’re closer. We’re far closer than we have been,” Long said. “We’re never satisfied. We’re not satisfied with three wins. But again, we think we’ve made progress. I think if you watched our football team compete, I think you would say we’ve made progress. We have to continue to make progress.” While an ideal win total didn’t materialize in Year 1, Long pointed to other specific fan- and booster-driven figures as signs of progress — a 74.3% increase in fans in the stands at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium for the highest season attendance (237,122) since 2013; a tripling of student attendance from a year ago; more than $16 million raised in less than two years for the “Break the Cycle” fundraising effort, which has a goal of $25 million over five years. – Matt Galloway, The Hutchinson News, Read More
