After spending Sunday watching film in his room of his three-turnover performance against Memphis and being distracted Monday during a finance class, Kansas quarterback Montell Cozart decided he needed to say something.
Following a six-turnover effort in Saturday’s 43-7 loss to Memphis, the Kansas football team leads the nation with 11 turnovers lost. KU coach David Beaty was asked during Monday’s Big 12 teleconference what a staff does to address that specific issue.
Kansas football coach David Beaty has added another title: kickoff and punt returners coach. The move comes after KU lost three fumbles, all on punt returns, in its first two weeks. Beaty also coaches KU’s quarterbacks and calls the offensive plays.
Michael Zunica has moved up the depth chart to earn first-team reps. As a senior, he’s one of a handful of players that is on all four of KU’s special teams units, and he also was a main part of the offense as a blocking back in the team’s first game.
Kansas quarterbacks appeared comfortable in a season-opening 55-6 victory over Rhode Island. That included Montell Cozart, who completed 18 of 25 passes for 199 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
