TCU's cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry is taking a title bump, and probably a pay raise, to go join David Beaty's staff in Lawrence.

Well, it would have been a miracle to come out of this season without losing at least once coach, and now one has left. TCU cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry will be heading to the University of Kansas, where he'll be the co-Defensive Coordinator and cornerbacks coach for the Jayhawks.

Perry had been with the Frogs since March of 2013. He was originally hired as TCU's director of high school relations and recruiting. In March of 2014 he made the move to cornerbacks coach. Here's an excerpt from his coach page on GoFrogs.com:

Perry came to the Horned Frogs after serving seven seasons (2006-12) as head football coach at Bowie High School in Arlington, Texas. While there, he coached current Horned Frogs Kolby ListenbeeClick here to hear it and Steve Wesley.

Prior to his tenure at Bowie, Perry was also head coach at Haltom High School (2004-05) and Arlington Sam Houston (2000-03). He has 22 years of coaching experience.

A three-time District Coach of the Year, Perry was the 2007 Dallas Morning News Coach of the Year. He was also a six-time selection as the Dallas Cowboys Coach of the Week. In 2010, Perry was selected to the Board of Directors for the Texas High School Coaches Association. He has also been the director of the North Texas High School Football Association.

Good luck, coach Perry, in every game except one!
