Previews, recaps, stories and other information are emailed to media by the athletic communications office. Media members that would like to be added to the Kansas Athletics e-mail distribution lists should contact Andy Eisch to be included in future releases.


Information for media credentials for Kansas home events must be made through the Kansas athletic communications office. Requests must be made through our online credential form.

Out-of-town media wishing to interview Kansas student-athletes should contact the communications office with their requests. Home and cell phone numbers for players will not be provided and players have been instructed not to accept calls from media without prior notice from the communications office. Please do not contact a player or coach without scheduling the interview through the communications office. Members of the media who reach out directly to Kansas student-athletes without prior approval may face suspension or revocation of credentials.
