Kansas AD Jeff Long Says Football Program Evaluation Ongoing

Kansas athletic director Jeff Long is dealing with the aftermath of the Jayhawks’ loss to FCS opponent Nicholls State at home and released a statement on Tuesday saying that the evaluation of the football program is “ongoing without a predetermined timeline.”

“We all expected a different outcome Saturday but I continue to support our student-athletes and coaches and ask all Jayhawks to do the same,” Long said, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter. “Our evaluation of the program is ongoing without a predetermined timeline.”

“I’ll tell you this: The sun’s going to come up tomorrow,” head coach David Beaty said.

“This team is going to continue to work toward the goals they have set.”

Kansas heads to Central Michigan on Saturday.
