Six games into his eight-game audition for the permanent head coaching job, Clint Bowen continues to build a strong resume for having the interim tag removed from his title at some point in the near future.

Asked after the game if Saturday’s effort against TCU, a 34-30 loss, had any impact on the ongoing search to find a new football coach, KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger spoke highly of Bowen and what he has accomplished here in the past seven weeks.

“Clint is definitely a candidate for the job,” Zenger said. “And he continues to be a strong candidate.”
