Kansas football is looking up in 2020, so here are four achievable goals for head coach Les Miles and the Jayhawks.
After a 3-9 season in Les Miles’ first run as the head coach of Kansas football, the Jayhawks’ expectations are going to rise. Not much, but another three-win season would certainly be a letdown.
The good news for Miles is that he signed a solid recruiting class this offseason made up of only high schoolers and no Juco recruits. That’s quite a change from previous coaches, and it’ll be interesting to see whether or not the switch pays dividends down the line.
Kansas football’s class of 2020 is currently ranked No. 48 overall according to Rivals, and tied for seventh in the Big 12 with Kansas State. It’s rated as one of the higher classes in the past five years for Kansas, which is a great sign of the direction of the program.
On another note, many of the Beaty era assistant coaches have now left the program, and are being replaced. While the loss of so many coaches seems bad initially, it isn’t. It’s fairly normal to see an exodus after a head coach’s first season with a team, and it also gives the head coach a chance to hire his own guys.
