K-State promotes Hayes to defensive coordinator

Kansas State secondary coach Tom Hayes has been promoted to defensive coordinator and former Washington assistant Mike Cox will coach K-State’s linebackers, sources told CBSSports.com.

Hayes replaces former defensive coordinator Chris Cosh, who left to become defensive coordinator at South Florida.

Hayes came to Kansas State last season from Tulane. He’s coached for 30 seasons, including seven in the NFL ranks, and previously had been a defensive coordinator at Stanford, UCLA, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Cox spent the past three seasons at Washington, where he coached linebackers. He also has coached two seasons in the NFL and was on staffs at Michigan State, Louisville, Utah State and Idaho.

17 football schools wouldn't have met APR minimum

With the NCAA’s Division 1 Board of Directors decision on Thursday to increase the average four-year APR score to 930 in order to be able to participate in the NCAA basketball tournament and bowl games, 17 of the Football Bowl Subdivision schools would not have met the APR requirement in the 2009-10 season.

Here are the football programs by conference that did not have a 930 APR in 2009-10:

ACC – Maryland, N.C. State
Big East – Louisville
Big Ten – Michigan
Pac-12 – Colorado, Washington State
Conference USA – UAB, Houston, Southern Miss, Tulsa, UTEP
Independent – Brigham Young
Mid-American – Akron
Sun Belt – Florida Atlantic, Louisiana-Monroe
WAC – Idaho, New Mexico State

Each school from the Big 12, SEC and Mountain West had at least a 930 APR.

Of the 17 schools with sub 930 APRs, eight played in bowl games last season – Maryland, N.C. State, Louisville, Michigan, Southern Miss, Tulsa, UTEP and BYU.

If the 930 APR requirement was in place, the Beef O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl (Louisville vs. Southern Miss) and New Mexico Bowl (BYU vs. UTEP) would have been seeking additional teams since their four schools would not have qualified.
