Beaty said the coordination of the offense will be a team effort, but that he will have final say regarding in-game play calling. In addition, Beaty will work directly with the quarterbacks.‘I appreciate Doug and all the work he put in during his time at Kansas,’ said Beaty. ‘None of us are satisfied with the progress we are making on the offensive side of the ball. We hope that with this change we are better able to put out players in the best position to be successful.’”Meachem was a big hire for Kansas ahead of the 2017 season, when Beaty hired him away from TCU. He split offensive coordinator duties with Sonny Cumbie as a member of the Horned Frogs staff. Cumbie remains in Fort Worth.The announcement comes ahead of Kansas’ bye week.

Historical Debates Now Online

This gives Nova Scotians access to the historical debates of the House, such as the 1907 debate on Prohibition in Nova Scotia and the debates leading up to the opening of the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge in Halifax. Hansard did not transcribe debates from 1917-1919, and 1921-1950, so debates during those dates are not available.
