Jeff Long rides off into the sunset.

Of course, you just knew that if anyone would raise a “do it for the kids” defense, it would be Long.

“I’m pretty upset, but I know how the world works. I’m just sick because I tried to do everything the right way with high ethics and morals and doing the right thing for young people. That’s the only thing that disappoints me,” Long said.

What a smarmy asshole.

Unfortunately for Jeff, that’s not what disappoints everyone else with a brain who’s watched Kansas athletics since he took the helm.

The tide on Long retaining his job seemed to turn Tuesday afternoon when it seemed he would remain in control and be allowed to make the next hire. However, when asked during a Zoom call about his history of football hires (Miles, Bobby Petrino, Bret Bielema) he became defensive.

When Long asked how those hires had been deficient, a media member replied, “on the field.” Kansas alums and fans reacted negatively on local radio and social media after the Zoom conference.

They ought to inscribe that on his tombstone.

    The highlights of his career are Bobby Petrino and Les Miles. What a resume!

    So after stops in the ACC, SEC & Big12, Long takes over as the PAC-12 Commish to replace Larry Scott?

    To think he headed the first CFP committee. He is the poster boy for all that is wrong with college football.

    It grinds my gears that folks like Long can get rich in spite of their abysmal ethics and poor job performance.

      Seems like they get rich because of their abysmal ethics. And the job performance doesn’t seem to matter. Just the salesmanship. Look at Jeff Long and tell me he doesn’t look like a salesman–or a Baptist minister. No offense to GTP readers in sales or the ministry.

    Damn. That was cold.

    Hilarious, but cold.
