Talented Dorance Armstrong anchors Kansas Jayhawks’ defense

Dorance Armstrong is his name, and terrorizing opposing offenses is his game. With continued improvement, this explosive junior just might become the premier defensive end in the country.

He’s simply the face of Kansas football, a surefire NFL first-round prospect. He’s the preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year who led the league with 20 tackles for a loss last season (No. 5 in FBS) and ranked No. 18 nationally with 10 sacks while being named a consensus All-Conference First-Team selection.

NOVEMBER 2015 – David Beaty didn’t hesitate when offered the Kansas football head coaching job last December by athletic director Sheahon Zenger.

Beaty, who served as an assistant at Texas A&M (2012-14) and previously two terms as a KU assistant coach (2008-09; 2011), knew how special it was at Mount Oread.

“We have an excellent genuine love for this program,” Beaty said. “We are humbled to be here, and I’ll tell you this: It took us no time because we absolutely love this place. The community is great. My wife and kids absolutely love it here. We have friends, we have a lot of different relationships already developed.
