Barnhart: No Formal Contact With Kansas

Responding to a web report that states he is a top contender for — and is interested in — the AD’s job at Kansas, Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart said via statement that there has been no contact between the Jayhawks and himself.

“Being a Kansas native with family in the area, having gone to Ottawa University in Kansas and my wife, Connie being a Kansas alum, I have many ties to the state.  We have received calls from friends and supporters of the university about the athletic director position at Kansas.  I have not been formally contacted by the University of Kansas.  I am 100 percent focused on UK Athletics.”

No mention as to whether or not Barnhart has been informally contacted, which — in the world of college athletics — is usually how the hiring process begins.

Spokespeople for Kansas have said that while their search is moving at a faster pace than expected, no list of finalists has been created.
