Torbush has been diagnosed with low-grade prostate cancer and has opted to end his 35-year coaching career to focus on treatment. Torbush will have surgery soon and is expected to make a full recovery.
"Carl has truly exemplified what a football coach should be throughout his career," coach Turner Gill said during a Tuesday press conference. "We want to thank him for his great spirit, knowledge of the game and loyalty to college football. He will be missed by our staff, our student-athletes, the entire KU nation and the college football family across the nation."
Defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt will serve as co-defensive coordinator alongside Sealy.
