TCU cornerbacks coach and former Arlington Bowie coach Kenny Perry has accepted a co-defensive coordinator job at Kansas.

Perry begins work on the new job immediately, he said.

Perry joined the TCU staff in 2013 as the director of high school relations and recruiting.

He moved up to coaching duties for the 2014 season as the Horned Frog cornerbacks coach.

Under his guidance, Perry led cornerback Kevin White to second-team All-Big 12 honors and freshman cornerback Ranthony Texada to the second-team Freshman All-American team.

Before his seven seasons at Arlington Bowie, Perry served as head coach at Haltom High and Arlington Sam Houston.

Perry was hired by David Beaty, who came from Texas A&M as the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator. Before assistant stints at Kansas and Rice, Beaty coached at Irving MacArthur.
