Former Jayhawk joining KU's coaching staff

Kale Pick led Kansas in receiving yards and receptions last season, but he'll continue to contribute to Kansas despite graduating after the 2012 season.

He's joining KU's staff as a graduate assistant on offense under Charlie Weis.

He'll work closely with receivers coach Rob Ianello, according to a release.

Pick, a native of Dodge City, Kan., caught 63 passes for 752 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his career, which took a sharp turn in 2010. Pick won the first quarterback competition under Turner Gill, but lost his starting spot after a 6-3 loss to FCS North Dakota State. Late in the 2010 season, he moved to receiver and showed a nice ability to do whatever it took to get on the field.

His career path was certainly reminiscent of former Jayhawk great Kerry Meier, but it's good to see Pick land in a good spot now that his playing days are over.
