Jonathan Beasley was a quarterback for the Kansas State Wildcats football team in 1999 and 2000. He currently serves as the wide receivers coach and Academic Coordinator at Tarleton State University, where he has been since the 2012 season.

Before Tarleton State, Beasley was an offensive graduate assistant at Kansas State under head coach Bill Snyder from 2009-2011.

Prior to returning to Kansas State, Beasley served as the wide receivers coach at Montana State in 2007 and 2008. The Bobcats went 7-5 this past season and 6-5 in Beasley’s first season on staff. As part of the Bobcat coaching staff, Beasley also assisted with the weekly implementation of the offensive game plan and served as the MSU Community Service Coordinator.

Before arriving at Montana State, Beasley served as a graduate assistant at Emporia State as well as quarterbacks and running backs coach at Wichita North High School in 2006 and JV and freshman quarterbacks coach at Cactus High School in Glendale, Arizona in 2003. Beasley played professionally for the Wichita Aviators in the American Professional Football League in 2005, the Wichita Stealth in Arena II in 2004, the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2003, the Detroit Lions also in 2003, and the Green Bay Packers in 2001. He also played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League in 2001 and 2002.

Beasley was a two-year starter at Kansas State, compiling a 132.7 pass efficiency rating in 2000, the top mark in school history to that point. He threw for over 30 touchdowns in his career and finished with 4,642 career passing yards. He holds the school record for most yards per completion for a game (23.9), season (20.1) and career (17.9) while also compiling a 21-4 record in two seasons as the Wildcat starting quarterback. He led K-State to the 2000 Big 12 Championship Game appearance against Oklahoma as a senior, and led the Wildcats to a win over Nebraska that same season by throwing a game-winning 12-yard scoring strike in the game's final three minutes.[1]
