Kansas offensive coordinator Andy Kotelnicki has agreed to a contract extension that will keep him in Lawrence for at least another five years, according to a report from Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger.
The Jayhawks’ offense ranked third in the Big 12 with 34.2 points per game, ninth nationally in yards per play (6.7 ypp), and fifth nationally in passing efficiency (163.24). Under Kotelnicki, the Jayhawks’ offense flourished under two different quarterbacks this season and was one of the better units that the Big 12 had to offer.
With KU’s high-flying offense, the Jayhawks soared to their best finish since 2008 and are also headed to their first bowl game in that same stretch.
Kansas head coach Lance Leipold also received a contract extension in November, one that will keep him in Lawrence until 2029.
Maintaining a coaching staff with report and familiarity is sometimes the best thing that an athletic department can do to produce positive results on the field and it appears that Kansas is investing in its football program to do just that.
Kansas will face Arkansas in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl on December 28 at 4:30 p.m. CT. The Jayhawks are currently a three-point underdog in that game.
