The Big 12 Conference held its media days for football on Monday and Tuesday in Dallas. During the sessions each of the Big 12 coaches spoke to the media about the upcoming season. In this RandHSports.com Q&A, we feature the comments of Kansas coach David Beaty.
COACH BEATY: Good morning. How exciting it is for me to be right back here in my hometown of Dallas, Texas, representing the University of Kansas. It’s an exciting time to be here at Big 12 Media Days with you.
One of the big things for me is we are located right now in one of the finest, most fertile grounds for high school athletes in the country, and those athletes are coached by some of the finest high school coaches in the country.
I’m an old Texas high school football coach, and I consider those guys to be my brothers. So it’s a good deal for me to be back here today around those guys.
I’m also honored to be the new head coach at the University of Kansas, where we have arguably one of the finest fan bases in the country. Boy, they love Jayhawk football, and we look forward to bringing them something that they can be proud of. We also know that that’s a process and not an event, and we’re looking forward to getting wrapped up in that process.
