I like the extension and pay raise. Signs of progress need to be rewarded. Even if the progress only resulted in a couple wins. Beaty is improving the program and needs to be compensated for his hard work. Rock Chalk!
Agreed. It's a valuable tool in recruiting. No doubt the competition was telling recruits KU fires their coaches after 2 or 3 years so Beaty wasn't going to be around. This fixes that and gives a recruit some confidence the head coach will be there all 4 years to keep building the program.
I like the extension and pay raise, too. I think Beaty and staff are working hard and doing things the right way. My only disappointment in this move, is that, I thought KUCO would be so distraught that he would finally leave the football board for good. I guess it didn't happen. I realize that you enjoy stirring the pot and getting a rise out of people, but it gets old after a while. If you're not a KU football fan, stay on your basketball bandwagon, and leave this board to the Jayhawk fans and Alum that enjoy intelligent conversation. I think we all know the state of the football program and don't need all your whining and negativity.
