Former Arkansas AD has been chosen to take over at University of Kansas. They are paying him a huge salary to jumpstart football and the stadium reno. Good luck to him, he sounds qualified to do his job.

Jeff Long will have to hire another football coach.

Jessica Dorrel and Bobby Petrino was scandalous.

Now for the inevitable BS pressers..."I have met with Coach Beaty and feel extremely confident in his and his staff's abilities..." ultimately followed by the kiss of death quote" I give Coach Beaty a strong vote of confidence!"

Let the BS games begin!

Hiring Long puts KU in a good position to hire a new football coach. This will help us target our speculation about the replacement for Beaty.

No problems if Jeff Long offered Lee Miles the KU football coach positions. Boosters would be wise to donate for changing KU football around.

Soon-to-be AD Jeff Long is the first quality hire in upper management for years at Kansas. His cred isn't like an over-the-hill former HC hire...

Not sure about hiring a guy that was fired recently so we'll see what he can do.

No, I'm not saying that. I think the biggest asset he has is experience as a P5 AD. But is recent football hire at Arkansas has to be questioned.

Looking for a perfect candidate? We are so far away from perfection in football, that I am thrilled ANY one with this much experience & still young enough to bother trying this turn-around. We should wish him well w/o complaining.

Long was best gettable guy available. No one has a perfect coach-hiring resume unless they've only hired one. The fact that he has enough P5 experience to have hire multiple coaches at multiple schools gives him an edge. He may have some insight on why some were good hires and others were not.

Does the reputation of Jeff Long open the field of hireable coaches beyond another candidate?

Does this open the door to a Les Miles that otherwise wouldn't consider KU?

Maybe. I assume he already has a short list in his pocket better than anything we've had in recent history.
