Kevin Sumlin is already searching for a new defensive coordinator, and could be in the market for a new offensive coordinator as well. Now, it appears the Texas A&M head coach will have another hole on his coaching staff to fill.
Earlier this morning, Rivals.com reported that Kansas had zeroed in on A&M wide receivers coach David Beaty as its leading candidate for head coach. A short time later, Bruce Feldman of FOXSports.com tweeted that “Beaty has been told he’s getting the KU head coaching job.”
Rivals confirmed that Beaty will be in Lawrence Friday to continue what’s suddenly become an expedited search process. An announcement could come as early as Friday evening or as late as Monday, the recruiting website reported.
Beaty, who is widely acclaimed as a top-notch recruiter with extensive ties to the state of Texas, has worked at KU in the past, serving on Mark Mangino’s staff in 2008 and 2009 and then returning in 2011 as co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach. He’s been at A&M since 2012.
