According to an Oregon State board our WR coach, Jason Phillips, is headed to Oregon State.

Interesting what the connection is there.

Credit goes to the Phog board where this was posted earlier.

Other teams are seeing what kind of staff we have and will start to poach our coaches now

Maybe Beaty brings back Kubiak but I would rather see him hire an experienced OC.

Honestly, I'd really like Kiesau back with these guys.

Not sure what he's doing now. He was the interim head coach at Fresno State before they hired Tedford. It does not appear that he was retained by Fresno State.

It seemed like he could get the offense moving when Bowen was promoted after the Weis firing.

Kansas was looking to do air raid offense in 2017. WRs are an important part of that style. Last thing we needed was instability in that area. Also he was a Texas area recruiter for Kansas.

Isn't Kubiak a bit too inexperienced yet? Just my opinion...

Kiesau, Kubiak or McGuire would be the picks if Phillips does in fact leave.

McGuire just got hired at Baylor, but he doesn't have a title or responsibility yet. McGuire and Beaty go back a long ways, and McGuire would be a great recruiter and motivator.
Kiesau has plenty of experience and knows how to run an offense if Beaty would want to give him the keys for offense.
Kubiak already has experience at KU, only seemed to leave because he wanted to coach with his dad before his dad's health got worse, which only lasted 1 year together.

Is it only a shock to me that Hull hasn't been plucked off the staff from someone from a southern school? I know he isn't experienced at this level, but his connections alone seem like enough already.

It's similar to a head coach at a smaller conference school. Most places want to see consistency year to year to make sure it's not just a one year fluke. Plus, as he is a running back's coach, I would like to see his RBs develop and do a bit more than what they showed this year.

I'd give him a year or two, and if he keeps producing recruits and improves his RBs results, I would not be surprised to see him more sought after or actually poached.

No one said he is leaving.

It's interesting that this Phillips move was supposedly be announced a few days ago, and there hasn't been anything yet. It's strange because during his entire college coaching career, he's stayed close to his Texas roots. Kansas has been the furthest move for him. And at this point in the year, most of the coaching carousel is complete as staffs get ready to finish recruiting before signing day..

I haven't heard any 'real' news about it from the KU side.

Didn't hurt to post the rumor and see if anyone else had further info. It seemed like Jason Phillips was a very random name for them to be throwing out as a possible coach with out some info to back it up.

The Oregon Staters on twitter and their boards are essentially saying the holiday(s) delayed the paperwork/background stuff that would be needed before they could hire him.

Not a great source. Just interesting.

Also official on Oregon State's website. This kind of stinks. I didn't think anyone would be lost from this staff. A definite leap of faith by Phillips going to Pacific Northwest when he hasn't gone any further north than Lawrence in college coaching. Oregon State wants to increase their presence in Texas, I guess.

Will be interesting to see where Beaty goes. Need to get a guy who can go after Texas kids. Too late to bring Likens back? Haha!

On the bright side, we paid Likens a decent chunk of money (for our standards) at $300k.

Hopefully we can use that to find someone of worthwhile quality.
