Kansas Football Unveils 2015 Media Guide in Advance of Big 12 Media Days
LAWRENCE, Kan. – As Kansas football embarks on its annual trip to Dallas for the 2015 edition of Big 12 Conference Football Media Days Monday, Kansas Athletics has unveiled its 2015 football media guide.
The book’s four covers display a fresh look at the new regime under first-year head coach David Beaty. The front cover portrays the one of a kind atmosphere – everything from pre-game tailgating, to kickoff itself – on a fall Saturday on Campanile Hill that overlooks Memorial Stadium.
The inside front cover features a collage of Beaty’s newly assembled coaching staff. The inside of the back cover is devoted to Kansas football’s outstanding community service, while the 2015 schedule comprises the back cover.
Between the covers, are 208 pages of in-depth looks at player and coaching staff bios, opponent information, a 2014 season review, as well as the all-time record book and a history section.
