Kansas City Star says Barnhart not likely for Kansas

J. Brady McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports on the Kansas athletic director search.

In it, McCullough writes:

One logical candidate for KU would be Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart, a Mission native who graduated from Shawnee Mission North High School in 1977 and attended college at Ottawa University in Kansas. At Kentucky the last nine years, Barnhart also has experience running a department that has a historically prominent basketball program as its lifeblood.

Evans would not identify who had interviewed for the job. But a source with knowledge of KU’s search told The Star that Barnhart is not likely to land the Kansas job.

“It’d be tough for him to get in there,” the source said. “I wouldn’t spend a lot of time on Mitch Barnhart.”

The source also said that the search committee’s current targets are, like Barnhart, sitting athletic directors with impressive resumes.
