Kansas hires David Beatty
Kansas filled one of the openings on its coaching staff Friday, hiring David Beatty as its wide receivers coach. Beatty coached wide receivers and worked as passing game coordinator at Rice for the past two seasons. During his time at Rice, the Owls moved from the 47th-ranked pass offense in the nation in 2006 to the 15th-best in 2007. Beatty coached wide receiver Jarett Dillard for two seasons, who holds the Rice records for career receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches. Before coaching at Rice, Beatty went 33-11 as head coach at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas.
