Les Miles is ‘frontrunner’ to become next coach at Kansas, report says

Les Miles could be heading to Kansas.

There’s “a lot of momentum” for Miles to become the next coach of the Jayhawks, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites an unidentified source.

Kansas, which is 3-6 record so far in 2018, fired coach David Beaty earlier this week. Beaty, however, will finish the season before vacating the job.

Beaty has a 6-39 record over three-plus seasons with the Jayhawks.

“My family and I would like to thank all of our KU football family and their families who have worked so hard and made so many sacrifices during our time here,” Beaty said in a statement Sunday. “Only they know the challenges we have faced and how far we have truly come in working to move this program forward.

“We will always cherish being a part of the great Jayhawk Nation.”
