Weis was just 6-22 in his coaching career with the Jayhawks. This record included a 1-18 record in the Big 12.

He was in the third year of a five-year contract. Yesterday, the team lost 23-0 to the Texas Longhorns to go to 2-2 on the season.

The Jayhawks are 64-3 in their losses. Besides the 23-0 loss to Texas, they also lost 41-3 in Durham, North Carolina on September 13th.

The team won 34-28 over Southeast Missouri to begin the season, then 24-10 last week over Central Michigan.

Kansas will continue conference play over the rest of the season. Next weekend, they play at West Virginia in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Weis is the first head coach to be fired this season. June Jones, formerly of SMU stepped down due to what he called heath reasons after just two games.
