KU's fourth-year head coach, of course, was informed Sunday by athletic director Jeff Long he won't be retained for the 2019 season.

Kansas, which is 3-6 record so far in 2018, fired coach David Beaty earlier this week.

According to FOX Sports reporter Bruce Feldman, Les Miles is now the frontrunner for the head coaching job at the University of Kansas.

All that trailer really does is make me question why there isn't some kind of single-player component to PUBG . Why you'd want to be reminded that Suicide Squad exists is beyond me, but this is the world we live in now.

Even though Beaty is 6-39 coaching the Jayhawks, Heeney tweeted that he doesn't think "there's a coach out there that could have been thrown into that -- storm and done a better job", adding he has "nothing but respect and admiration" for Beaty. His record includes a 2-31 mark in Big 12 conference play. Miles and new Kansas athletic director Jeff Long have a previous relationship that dates back to 1988, when Miles was an assistant coach and Long was an associate athletic director at MI until 1994.

Head coach Les Miles of the LSU Tigers look on during the game against the Texas A&M Aggies at Tiger Stadium on November 28, 2015 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Miles has been out of coaching since getting fired by LSU, but he's reportedly had serious interest in returning to the sideline. While there has been no contact between Army and Kansas, Army is concerned about losing it's head coach after his string of recent successes.
