Kansas football coach David Beaty gets extension, raise
University of Kansas head football coach David Beaty has signed a two-year extension that takes him through the 2021 season. The extension elevates his guaranteed annual income to $1.6 million the first year, increasing by $100,000 in each succeeding year.
“This shows our appreciation for Coach Beaty, his staff and our players,” said KU Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger. “I have enjoyed watching their progress during this season. We want to capitalize on the momentum we all saw as the season came to a close. This reflects our belief in Coach Beaty’s leadership, and the energy and enthusiasm that we see every day from him and his players.”
The extension includes additional incentive payments for achievements including conference championships, bowl victories and coach-of-the-year honors.
Beaty last month completed his second season as KU’s head coach with a compensation package worth $800,000 per year.
“I am appreciative of Dr. Zenger and our administration’s show of support,” said Beaty. “He and his staff have gone above and beyond to give us everything we need to build our program. Our staff and players have worked diligently to lay a strong foundation for the years to come. While we have certainly made some progress, we still have work to do to get to where we ultimately want to be and we look forward to continuing to take on that challenge. I am excited about the future of this program and am very honored to be the man leading it.”
