Greatest NCAA College Basketball Programs of All Time: University of Kansas Jayhaws After being coached by the inventor of the game, James Naismith, it comes as no surprise that the University of Kansas men’s Jayhawk squad is ranked among the elite in college basketball. Naismith was the first coach of the Jayhawks beginning way back in 1898, but as of 2007 remains KU’s only coach to post a losing record and that means no coach has experienced a losing record in over a century. Despite only winning two national championships – one in 1952 and one in 1988, Kansas has remained one of the most dominant programs in college history.
