SLATE: And now there are two

Four Big 12 teams hired coaches in late 2018, only two remain.

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports


Kansas State senior Karine-Marion Job did something no other Wildcat had done before, becoming the first player in program history to qualify for the ITA National Fall Championships after finishing with the runner-up singles title at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Central Regional on Monday


The last FBS coach to last more than two years after losing to KU? Surprisingly, it’s Gary Patterson, whose Horned Frogs lost to KU in 2018 (in Lawrence). Past that it’s a very short list, and includes Dana Holgerson (2013 with WVU in Lawrence), and Paul Rhoads’ first season in Ames (in Lawrence, in Mangino’s last season). Matt Wells made it almost two years to the day before getting canned in Lubbock on Monday after starting the 2021 season at 5-3, but very likely to miss bowl eligibility for the 4th-straight season with four games remaining against Top 25 teams. Of the four coaches hired by Big 12 schools in late 2018, only two are still with their programs: Chris Klieman and Neal Brown. And both of those have felt significant heat after making just one bowl game in their first two seasons, and both having rocky starts to 2021.

Kellis Robinett has his “Five Things To Know” as we head into the TCU game this weekend. This should be a good game for the offense to get rolling.
