The Kansas Jayhawks certainly haven’t had a ton of luck on the gridiron the last few years. They haven’t had a winning season since 2008 and they went 0-12 during the 2015 season.
David Beaty is trying to help turn the program around, but he will do it without one of his assistants going into the 2016 season. On Tuesday, the Denver Broncos confirmed that Kansas wide receivers coach Klint Kubiak would be joining their staff next season.
Kubiak is the son of Gary Kubiak, head coach of the Super Bowl 50 champion Broncos. It is pretty hard not to want to head to the NFL to coach under your father, especially when he is the coach of the NFL’s best team.
“I’m really going to miss Kansas,” Kubiak told the Lawrence World-Journal. “And I’m kind of jealous that I won’t be here for all of the good times that are ahead. I just really appreciate everything David has done for me personally and professionally. I had no intention of leaving. It just kind of came up and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go be with family. But it definitely wasn’t an easy thing to do.”
Before spending the 2015 season at Kansas, Kubiak spent time with the Minnesota Vikings from 2013-14 and Texas A&M from 2011-12.
