Beaty filed a lawsuit that alleges that Jayhawks athletic director Jeff Long and another senior Kansas official discussed needing to "find" something that would void Beaty's buyout. The "something" they had in mind was a "dead hooker" in his closet.
Breaking: Former Kansas head coach David Beaty has filed suit against Kansas in federal court over payment of his buyout, including a claim that KU joked about finding “a dead hooker” to get out paying Beaty $3 million https://t.co/BO1CoM2Bdt— Steven Godfrey (@38Godfrey) March 12, 2019
A DEAD HOOKER. The sleaziness of college ADs will never be topped. While they likely weren't serious about actually needing to find a dead hooker, the analogy alone proves they were planning to do something beyond dirty.
Beaty, now with Tom Herman's Texas staff, claims that the two parties had originally agreed to six payments of $500,000 over the course of three seasons. The school alleges that an independent investigation found unprofessional conduct from one his assistant coaches, but nothing concrete ever materialized.
Kansas did not fire David Beaty because of anything other than the team not winning. Pay him is money and move on. #KUfball— Mike Vernon (@M_Vernon) March 12, 2019
Beaty may not have been Bear Bryant, but he is still owed the money in his buyout. This is yet another despicable move from a college AD trying to assassinate someone's character, and further evidence that somebody needs to police the disgusting NCAA.
