David Beaty – Kansas
It’s hard to imagine that any coach in college football has as hot of a seat as David Beaty right now. His chair was on fire coming into this season and now there’s just about nothing remaining of the seat he has sat on.
It was kind of crazy in the first place that Kansas decided to bring back a coach that was 3-33 in his first three seasons as a head coach. That paltry .083 win percentage is about as bad as it gets for a coach that keeps his job.
So how did Beaty repay the program that brought him back? By coaching his team to a loss in overtime against FCS Nicholls State. It doesn’t get much worse than paying a program to come to town to lose and then end up losing to them.
Nicholls State robbed Kansas blind and that was their best shot at achieving victory this season. Now, they have Central Michigan on the schedule and if they don’t pick up a victory against the Chippewas, it’s hard to see where this next win is coming from.
It’s bad enough that some within are calling for the program to be shut down. Things have never been this bleak for Kansas and it’s a reminder that keeping a coach just to have some consistency doesn’t always work out either.
