LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — David Beaty has plenty of reasons to be feeling the pressure this season.

The biggest is his record, which is just 3-33 in three seasons at Kansas. His only win over a power school came in 2016, when the Jay-hawks stunned Texas to end a long and frustrating Big 12 skid, and there are very few places where a coach will get much support with that kind of resume.

Then there’s the fact that his biggest supporter, Sheahon Zenger, lost his own job earlier this year. Zenger was fired as athletic director after failing to turn around the program, his failed hiring of Charlie Weis perhaps his biggest misstep along the way.
