Doug Meachum is Leaving TCU for...Kansas

TCU Co-Offensive Coordinator Doug Meacham is leaving crazy ass Fort Worth for the now frozen tundra of Lawrence, Kansas to take over the reigns of the Jayhawk offense. Wait...what? Yep. This according to almost every source in college sports. 

Meacham was the Co-Coordinator and play caller with Sonny Cumbie for the past three years, including two incredibly productive seasons in 2014 and 2015 that saw the Frogs finish in the top five in total offensive. Maybe Meacham got tired of the cooperative process of the shared responsibility for TCU's offense. Meacham by the way called plays for TCU while Cumbie coached quarterbacks. 

Meacham coached at Houston in 2013 before moving up to Fort Worth. He'll join Texas transplant David Beaty who took over the Kansas program from the human dumpster fire that is Charlie Weiss back in 2015. The going has been slow at Kansas in part because Weiss decided to run off half the scholarship players and never replenished the pantry. Beaty's rebuild showed signs of improvement with a win over Texas and close league losses to TCU and Iowa State. 

We wonder if TCU fills Meacham's roll as Co-OC or just hires a position coach to fill in and promotes Cumbie to full time play caller. Gary Patterson has expressed some issue with the Frogs inability to run the ball in 2016 and even hinted at the need for some changes on the offensive side.
