Former Kansas football coach David Beaty has not traded in his crimson and blue gear for burnt orange.
However, according to Texas head coach Tom Herman, Beaty, who spent their last days with the jayhawks preparing to defeat Longhorns, will at least play a small role in helping them.
During Monday’s Big 12 Championship Teleconferencing, Herman was asked about a report from Orangebloods.com that Beaty would consult an UT coach as he and his team prepared for the Longhorns conference title match match with Oklahoma.
“Every time you have the opportunity to get some knowledge of what an opponent saw in your demolitions of you, you want to see it,” said Herman. “It’s quite common stuff. I do not know why it’s so big of a deal.”
Obtained by Journal-World, Beaty refused to comment on the reported event.
Herman and Beaty worked closely as assistant coach on Rice 2007. Herman was the offensive co-ordinator and quarterback coach while Beaty supervised recipients and was the leading game coordinator.
During his Monday press conference, Oklahoma chief coach Lincoln Riley was asked about Herman seeking entry from Beaty.
“Coach Beaty can do what he wants to do. I do not like the precedent for being able to bring someone from the league from the same year. I do not think it’s good for the conference. But it is not against the rules, and if they want to do that, is it good, said Riley.
Should Riley get someone to come in to help OU?
“No comment” answered a smile Riley.
