Just when did the University of Kansas decide to fire David Beaty as head football coach?
That question is at the heart of two depositions unsealed this week in the bitter federal court battle between Beaty and KU Athletics.
In a deposition taken in February, KU Athletics Director Jeff Long was unequivocal about when he decided to fire Beaty.
"Shortly before November 4th," he told Beaty's lawyer.
That was the day in 2018 after KU lost at home to Iowa State 27-3 with just 15,543 people in the stands, fewer than see most Jayhawk basketball games.
