ARLINGTON, Texas — New Kansas coach Les Miles got in front of the question before anyone could ask it.
“There is no proper way to put it,” Miles said Monday during his time on the podium at Big 12 Media Day. “There is no violence — violence will not be accepted with women. Period.”
KU running back Pooka Williams, a preseason first-team media selection on the 2019 All-Big 12 team and a 1,125-yard rusher last season, was reinstated last week after a 7-month suspension following a domestic violence charge.
Miles anticipated the question and addressed it in his opening comments.
“I did not make this decision,” Miles said. “But I stand by it and see is as a right one.”
