Judge allows former KU football coach's lawsuit to proceed

August 10th, 2019 by Associated Press in College Sports

LAWRENCE, Kan. — A federal judge has ruled former Kansas football coach David Beaty's lawsuit against the school will proceed.

Federal Judge Kathryn Vratil declined a motion from the university to dismiss the lawsuit Thursday.

Beaty sued Kansas in March. He alleges breach of contract and claims he's owed $3 million. Beaty was fired in November after posting a 6-42 record in nearly four seasons.

Kansas officials have said they are withholding the money pending an NCAA investigation into possible rules violations.
