LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas secondary coach Clint Bowen will take over as coach of the linebackers after DeMontie Cross decided to leave for a similar position at Big 12 rival TCU.

Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis said Friday that Bowen would switch duties.

Bowen was part of the Kansas staff even before Weis arrived prior to last season. He was the defensive coordinator in 2008, when he helped the Jayhawks to a win in the Insight Bowl.

Weis did not say when he planned to hire a new secondary coach, though defensive coordinator Dave Campo' forte is working with defensive backs.
