From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 14, 1987:

  • Bob Frederick officially had become the new athletics director at Kansas University on the previous day. Chancellor Gene Budig had made the announcement, saying that the search committee had been impressed by his "values and commitment to quality." Frederick, 48, had been AD at Illinois State for the previous two years and was replacing Monte Johnson, who had resigned from the Kansas AD spot on March 27.
