David Beaty’s time at Kansas didn’t exactly go as well as he hoped. Fortunately for the former head coach, he might have the chance to revitalize his career at Texas.
In three seasons with the Jayhawks, Beaty had a 6-42 record. One issue he came across was competing with football programs for top recruits.
With Kansas placing its trust in Les Miles for next season, Beaty is reportedly on his way to help a conference rival.
According to Texas reporter Anwar Richardson, Beaty moved to Austin in anticipation of joining the Longhorns’ coaching staff as an analyst.
He still has to work out his contract situation with Kansas, after suing the school for breach of contract in March, but all signs point to him being back in college football very soon.
We’ve seen former coaches join top programs to help rebuild their reputation in the coaching ranks. Perhaps Beaty can follow that blueprint that worked for Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian, and others.

Beaty would add more experience to the Longhorns’ coaching staff. It also helps that he spent his time coaching in the same conference.
Tom Herman has solidified himself as one of the better coaches in college football. The Longhorns would benefit from adding Beaty, who can help brainstorm new elements to the offense alongside Herman.
We’ll provide more updates on this situation as Beaty is close to returning to the Big 12.
