Big 12′s 2nd day features 2 new coaches, 2 QBs
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The second day of Big 12 football media days will feature two new coaches and the only two quarterbacks who are appearing at the conference’s two-day kickoff event.
While new Kansas coach Les Miles is the only Big 12 head coach with a national championship at college football’s highest level, new Kansas State coach Chris Klieman is coming off his fourth FCS championship in his five seasons as North Dakota State’s head coach. Klieman was also part of three other titles as defensive coordinator for the Bison.
Neal Brown took over at West Virginia after three consecutive 10-win seasons with bowl wins at Troy. He was Texas Tech’s offensive coordinator from 2010-12.
The quarterbacks talking Tuesday are Texas junior quarterback Sam Ehlinger, the preseason Big 12 offensive player of the year, and Kansas State junior Skylar Thompson.
